Year 6 STEM Transition Day
Year 6 enjoyed a transition STEM day on Wednesday 22nd June. In the lead up to the day the pupils had been working hard in their primary schools making models of what they consider to be Kinder, Smart, Safer buildings of the future. On the day the 100+ Year 6 pupils all came together to “build their City of Tomorrow.” The pupils were then asked to share their ideas with everyone, which ranged from buildings which were on adjustable stilts to take account of rising sea levels due to global warming to buildings that captured body heat to generate power. The buildings were judged by Helen Hughes from See Science, Joanne Morgan who is an architect and STEM ambassador from Specific and Owain Enoch from Carmarthenshire County Planning department. Some of the models will now be put on display during the British Science Festival which is being hosted by Swansea University in Sept as well as being entered in a national competition TeenTech City of Tomorrow.
