STEM day for year 8 students

At the start of this term, the Academy’s first STEM Careers Workshop took place at the Academy which was designed to encourage students to choose the Triple Science option on the EBacc pathway. Representatives from a number of STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering & Maths) local industries were invited to come along and present a 20 minute activity for the year 8 students who ‘carouselled’ around them. The various practical and stimulating activities were specially designed to inspire and inform students about the various jobs, skills, qualifications and progression routes within STEM industries that will be open to them in the world of work.
