STEM Society Students Inspired to Think Like Scientists

Friday 29 January 2021

Students across two year groups have been immersing themselves into a world of technology and engineering as part of a scheme that inspires young people ‘to think and behave like scientists and engineers’.

Fifth Formers and Lower 6th pupils took part in a STEM Society on Thursday afternoon, led by Miss Perkins and Mrs Smiter, which focusses on expanding pupils’ STEM knowledge.

L6th students Gary T and Finn P said: “As of now, 5th formers are partaking in a Silver Crest AwardCrest Award is an association which helps school students to undertake projects in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and is a nationally recognised scheme for student-led projects.

“The students of the Lower 6th Form are working in collaboration with Radius Aerospace, an aviation fabrication corporation which has a base in Shrewsbury.  This collaboration was organised by The Marches Center of Manufacturing & Technology (MCMT) which is led by Leanne Mee who is the Director of The STEM Workshop.

“This is a STEM Competition where an Amazon gift voucher will be awarded as the prize by Leanne Mee and The Marches Trust.”
