STEM Days and Workshops
STEM days are an exciting and fun way for students to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We are delighted to offer a range of workshops to cover the curriculum in STEM developed with such bodies as the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
This interactive workshop (supported by the Institute of Physics) looks at the Physics, such as speed, forces and light and sound, behind four sports activities. The students collate their results which they then utilise, together with the information on the worksheets, to answer a series of tiered questions at the end of the session.
Biology, Chemistry and Physics in Sport
This can include a one-hour interactive lecture looks at a range of topics including reactions, balance, forces, inertia, sound, energy and friction all in the context of different sports. Members of the audience are invited to help take part in some fun practical experiments to illustrate the theory behind many of the topics.
We also offer an interactive session that covers muscles, senses, joints and breathing, without the textbook. The workshop uses our highly engaging interactive equipment and provides for a fun environment whilst the students test themselves on the various challenges, including a practical way of looking at ATP, reactions, energy pathways, aerobic and anaerobic systems. Again we create an inspirational learning environment using a combination of written and practical activities.
A flexible interactive workshop which can be tailored to accommodate a range of abilities, even within one session, which provides the students with real life maths problems. Students are taken out of the classroom environment and introduced to a new and exciting way to learn mathematics. Through utilising state-of-the-art technological sports testing equipment, the students experience an interactive session whilst being challenged with various mathematical problems.
Engineering Challenge 2013
Equipping students with the required skills to succeed in engineering, this workshop covers a range of skills from planning, design, construction and testing. Practical activities include building solar-powered racing buggies, and testing fully-functioning catapults.
