“In collaboration with Smallpeice Trust, we are thrilled to announce the Primary School STEM SuperStars Programme, generously funded by the NCR Foundation. Get ready to transform your students aged 9-11 into aerospace engineers for a day! This isn't merely a STEM programme; it's your passport to a realm of innovation, creativity, and limitless opportunities. The programme kicks off with a high-energy, interactive session where your students will team up to design, build, and test not just one but three unique Straw Gliders.
Each glider will be a testament to their creativity, a masterpiece of form, shape, and materials. This is a hands-on, minds-on challenge that will have your students applying mathematical concepts, understanding the principles of flight, and thinking critically about design and performance! The CREST Awards are a nationally recognised scheme run by the British Science Association. Students will record each challenge they complete in their CREST Superstar Award passport and will receive a certificate and iron-on badge once all 8 are completed!”
