Shiregreen schoolchildren have been examining volcanic reactions and rocket launches at an exciting science day.
Children from different year groups got involved in STEM learning through a series of practical exercises, including making and launching a rocket and exploring the physics of flight through archery.
Medical supply drop challenge
Students also participated in a challenge simulating a medical supply drop where teams had to work out the best way to protect items using different methods.
Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Melanie King, said: “The day was a celebration of all things STEM, with innovative activities designed to show the youngsters that science is fun.
“I hope that the STEM skills they built up during the day will give them a passion to further this learning in the future.”
John Barber, CEO from The work-wise Foundation, added: “Thanks to Sanctuary’s support and funding we’ve been able to provide a range of exciting STEM activities to young people of all ages around Shiregreen.”
This project is funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
