STEM Experiences

On 11 June a group of 20 Year 9 students, accompanied by Ms Whitehead and Mr. Rowe set off early in the morning and headed to Merchant Taylor’s School in Rickmansworth.

Here the students attended three design workshops and learnt about the development of fast racing yachts in the past and up to the present day.

The students worked in group with pupils from the host school to design the best hull to cut through the water with the least water resistance and to design the best shaped turbine to generate electricity for the yacht.

The students also had a session of water sports where they were able to choose between sailing, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding.

All the students were a great example of Stocky at its best, they worked hard in the challenges, came up with some great ideas, worked well in teams and had fun on, and in, the water.

If you are interested in taking up sailing or windsurfing please follow this link https://www.rya.org.uk/get-afloat/try-sailing/Pages/try-sailing-sessions.aspx

 

On 12 June Mrs Hobbs and Mr. Tillott took a group of Year 10 students to Canterbury Christ Church University to compete in a design challenge which involved researching ingredients for a product, designing the packaging, carry out market research, write a catch phrase, present their product to industry STEM ambassadors and to answer questions on their chosen product.

It was a busy and tiring day but once again Stocky students rose to the challenge and their determination and hard work shone through.

 

Many thanks to all students who have participated in STEM events this year, to staff who have helped out at STEM events. STEM will be back next year.
