STEM Sentinus Day for Third Form

On Monday 2nd March Grosvenor’s Science Department welcomed Gerard Hughes from Sentinus to the school to provide two of its third form classes with an action-packed day and an introduction to careers involving STEM.  The pupils testified to their enjoyment of the event afterwards. 

“I really enjoyed the STEM Day because it was interesting and educational. I also enjoyed the way we got to do practical activities and have lots of fun.  I thought this was a very beneficial day and I hope we get to do it again soon.” (Chloe McLean)

“I really enjoyed last Monday because I like to build things and that is just what we did. My favourite project during the day was building a turbine using circuits. I wasn’t expecting it to be that fun, but I was wrong.” (Sam Sheridan)

“I enjoyed the STEM day as I believe it was a great experience and useful to learn about the STEM subjects. The thing I enjoyed most was creating the circuit for the fan as I thought it was cool!”  (Katie McCullough)

“My experience was really good; I especially liked the topic of how the technology could be applied, highlighting the type of jobs where sensors are used and what you can make from a small collection of circuit pieces.  I was very enjoyable, balancing learning and fun.” (Sam Tougher)

Many thanks to Mr Hughes for taking the time to visit the school and provide inspiration to those pupils in attendance regarding potential STEM-related careers, as well as Head of Physics Mrs Melanie Fox, whose diligent organization made the event possible.
