STEM for Seniors

Alan Denton (Science trainer, Physics specialist, Regional Representative for the Science Learning Network and Regional Leader for STEM learning) delivered some brilliant, informative and exciting STEM talks (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to the Senior School. He explained how STEM can be applied in the real world, the skills we learn from these subjects, and why they are such a good career choice. Everyone enjoyed taking part, especially in the circus of STEM experiments where pupils were required to present the experiments as magic tricks to each other. Alan also demonstrated some tricks of his own including the magic square, polarising filters and a neuroscience card trick.
