STEM Roadshow with pupils in Cleethorpes

Pupils in Key Stage 2 were visited by representatives from STEM organisations for an interactive session.

Years 4 and 6 were visited by MGA working in collaboration with BAE Systems, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy to deliver an engaging theatre roadshow celebrating STEM.

The theme of the show was ‘From the depths of the oceans to outer space’.

The show gave the children a key insight into the engineering challenges that are faced when travelling to the most inhospitable places and discover some of the innovative solutions to these problems.

The hands-on roadshow had children hooked throughout the session. They tackled communication and teamwork challenges, building satellite antenna in full astronaut equipment and getting an idea of the size of earth (a marble) compared to an enormous scale version of the sun.

Goodness Iwenofu (10) said: “In my opinion, it was spectacular. It gave me an idea of how hard engineers work. It was very interesting and I appreciated the performance a lot.”

Ellah Elliott-Wingate (11) said: “My favourite part was the inflatable sun. The visitors explained it really clearly and helped me to grasp just how small earth is in relation to other planets in the solar system.”

Principal at Reynolds Academy, Rebecca Scott, commented: “These events are so enriching for the children. It means that they can learn outside of the classroom and learn through more interactive events.

The representatives were brilliant and all of the children enjoyed the session immensely. We hope to welcome them back again.”
