On Wednesday 21st June, all Year 8 students were invited to take part in a whole day of STEAM fun in Cooper Hall.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century.

The day started with the students completing a practical science experiment based on the spread of an infection, they were then given data by Mr. Jury based on a real life infection and then they were given a challenge of turning this into a conceptual sculpture by Miss K. Along the way, the students worked as a team, solved problems and learnt new information. Students embraced this change of their usual structured day and put 100% into a different way of working. The results were interesting, thought provoking and informative. Well done Year 8!
