STEM Days at Collingwood College

 July 16 2019 | Surrey | Views: 68

Collingwood College hosted two very successful STEM Days in July, which were attended by 7 Primary Schools and 4 Secondary Schools. The days were organised and hosted by Mrs S Puri in the Science department with support on the days from Mrs Kaur and Dr Fergie-Woods. The Science department also provided hand on activities with their Eco Garden, which were supported by Ms Ellis and Mrs Moreton. Maths department (Miss Loveridge) and Technology Department (Mr Winter, Mr Thomas and their Robotic Team) also accompanied on both days.

The days were very popular particularly with the Primary students who had a special surprise visit from Birds of Prey. On both days, different STEM Ambassadors joined the event to show case their work in industry and how STEM links directly to their classroom education. Some of the representations were from the Army, IET, Wood Plc, NESCOT, Eagle Heights, Turn Town, Peripherals, IT and BAE System Submarine. Each industry had their individual stall with lots of engaging and interactive activities. The students enjoyed both days and provided very positive feedback as they related to how STEM subjects were being used in industry.

The following Primary Schools attended the event Mytchett Primary School, Lakeside Primary School, Holy Trinity COE Primary School, The Grove Primary School, Ravenscote Junior School, Hammond School and Cordwalles Junior School. The Secondary schools, which attended the events, were Collingwood College, Bishop Brown David School and Kings International School. I am pleased to say that we also had attendance from 2 of our School Governors (Mark Zymela and Shaun Garrett) on both days.

We invite you in advance to the second STEM Days that will be hosted at Collingwood College on 8th and 9th July 2020. If you wish to take please email thestemhub@canterbury.ac.uk or contact us with your details.
