It was lovely to meet year 8 this morning and introduce the Think Physics project and STEM careers. We’re looking forward to working with Cramlington Learning Village over the next couple of years and sharing the fantastic reasons to consider a future in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We’ll be running activities for all the different year groups.
This morning in assembly we played ‘I’m a STEM Pupil, Get me out of here’. Everyone got involved with working out the answers, and the volunteers were excellent!
We found out that STEM is interesting, challenging and shapes the world around us. We saw that the skills developed while studying STEM will be in high demand in the future, and that there are companies here in the North East which offer great career possibilities.
Next year students will choose GCSE subjects as part of year 9 choices. Some STEM subject choices are compulsory (Science and Mathematics). However, it is worth considering additional STEM subjects such as computer science or Design and Technology.
Here is a copy of the ‘5 Reasons to choose STEM’ postcard that we gave out during the assembly. Choose a future in STEM Postcard
See you all soon!
