Year 10 Stemnet day

Generation X - a Y10 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Enterprise event - all students were given the opportunity to work with STEM Ambassadors and apprentices. They worked in groups and in the morning they formed a company and put together a business proposal for a new Power Station at Seaton Carew. In the afternoon they were challenged to build an electricity pylon which would withstand the weight of electricity cables. Quotes from students:

"encouraged us to take an active role"

"really enjoyed all the activities"

"I now see the importance of teamwork"

"I really enjoyed how it required a lot of thinking"

" a great day"

"thoroughly enjoyed it"

"extremely fun and helpful"
