Secondary STEM Day

Just this month I read an article describing Vietnam’s breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology.  A group of scientists lead by Nguyen Van Hieu, associate of Vietnam Academy of Science, describes how Vietnam has pioneered this research, acting as a leader within South-East Asia. The hope is to use such technology to advance the field of medicine, crop production and computer-technology.

This week, our fantastic students worked to use the same skills needed by this team to compete in fun STEM-challenges.  Those that excel as a team often come up out on top.  Houses that communicated effectively and showed innovation with their ideas demonstrated an ability to succeed and win at the challenge.  Patience was at the centre of the Rocket Challenge as students aimed to produce identical rockets that landed at the same point, while scientific consideration was required for the Solar Cooker Challenge!  Technology was at the forefront in the Catapult and Spaghetti-Tower Challenges, whilst Year 7 students had great fun at the ambitious Balloon Car Challenge.

Despite mixed results in different events, ultimately Hanoi and Saigon houses showed themselves to be willing to think outside-of-the-box as they took the majority of the first place awards.  However, it was Saigon House that just crept in front, having been nominated for 3 superb communication awards.  Well done Saigon, and well done to all students who took part!
