Year 5 STEM day at Thomas Clarkson Academy
Page created: 22 January 2020 by Faith Delve
On Tuesday the 14th of January the Year 5’s enjoyed an outing to the Thomas Clarkson to join in with a range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical activities (STEM).
During the day they met with two RAF lieutenants who showed them the most recent technology within the F35 helmets and the clothing that they wear. Thomas Clarkson staff gave them maths lessons on probability, science lessons on forces and technology lessons on levers and pulleys. Lastly they met with a representative from Anglian Water who showed them how to use microscopes to view germs and bacteria within sewage (pre treated of course!). An experience fully enjoyed by all the children!
The children were blown away from the day and were excited to return to school to share their experiences. They all wished the day had have been longer.
