This morning Year 6 became astronomers and found out about the development of the telescope throughout history as well as about the role of women in astronomy. They discovered what stars are made from and how astronomers know this by analysing the light they produce. To find out more about astronomy and to try some activities at home, click here.
The NUSTEM team have been in school to work with Nursery children (Monday) and Reception children (Wednesday) investigating different ways to blow bubbles. Why not try our non-messy indoor bubbles at home? You only need a teaspoon of washing up liquid and sugar and a straw to blow bubbles with. Go to our STEM at home bubbles page to find out more.
This half term, Kenton Bar Primary have borrowed the KS2 Sound loans box. To find out more about our loans box and to try a related activity at home, click:
Today Year 3 became geologists and investigated meteorites which are rocks from space. For more activities to try at home, go to our meteor crater activity.
This afternoon the Year 1 classes became systems engineers. They planned, created, tested and improved marble run. To find ways to be a systems engineer at home, visit our Systems Engineer webpage.
Today Year 2 children became materials scientists and investigated materials using weight, electricity and magnets. Why not investigate how strong the materials in your home are by trying our NUSTEM at home Bridge Building activity?
Today Reception children became Glaciologists and investigated melting ice. Why not try our NUSTEM melting ice activity at home? All you need is some ice cubes and bowls to put them in.
