LAST Monday, pupils at St James’ C of E Primary School were lucky to have an Immersive Experience Day with the STEM Learning Hub!
Every class had the chance to visit the planetarium with a real astrophysicist, who told them all about the wonders in space.
At lunchtime, the children were visited by STEM ambassadors who talked to the pupils about their jobs in science and engineering – these ranged from structural engineers to an project manager working on the satellites orbiting Earth.
Year 3 were also lucky enough to have a special rock workshop too.
Head of School, Casey Cox said “It was an amazing way to start our Science Week! The children were really engaged in the activities and having the opportunity to talk to people in STEM careers was inspirational for so many of them. We are very grateful to the STEM Learning Hub for putting this day together for us.”
