A six week programme has been held to deliver a STEM Club to ten school children in the borough.
TyneMet College has been visiting pupils at Grasmere Primary School to engage the pupils in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focused activities, which are not only fun, but give the youngsters an insight into the exciting opportunities open to them through STEM-related learning.
At each session the pupils enjoyed finding out more about the world around them and identifying elements of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths through STEM focused activities.
Each session focused upon a particular area of Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths, all tailored to the children’s age range of 7–11 years.
Emma Garrick, STEM specialist at TyneMet College, said: “I really enjoy delivering the STEM Club, the pupils involved are always keen to find out more and return with added enthusiasm each week.
“I was delighted to see the children working in teams to solve problems.
“They were excited to join in discussions about the various topics we covered and were also enthusiastic when taking part in practical activities.
“The sessions are designed to help the school pupils identify how STEM fits in to the everyday world around them and develop further interest in STEM related subjects.”
