What a fantastic day our @SAMLabs STEM kit at @StPeterPaulPri we’ve made pianos to play twinkle twinkle on, we’ve created mood lighting and intruder alarms and year 5 and 6 have made their own remote control cars using Bluetooth. Phew what an amazing day! pic.twitter.com/tRN6T03Zu4

Panic, the school minibus has broken down; school may have to cancel the yaer6 trip! Without further ado, we packed our equipment in our cars and off we set off to school. Masefield had a full STEM day planned using Micro:Bit and InOBots neither of which they had used before.
Throughout the day, the children were set a range of computing challenges using both devices, they particularly enjoyed the Micro:Bit as were pleased to know that they would be using these at their secondary school. Below you can see highlights of the day.
STEM is the acronym used in England for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We need to teach skills that will prepare our children for the future – occupations in STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth. STEM skills are important across different career paths and other aspects of life. STEM-related knowledge and skills are necessary across nearly all areas of employment and are crucial in many sectors.
SICT launch our STEM project loan boxes – All our STEM boxes come fully loaded with all the resources you need to teach a 4 week block on STEM in school. The boxes include; lesson plans, classroom resources, “How to…” guides and all the technology you need to get started.
Each box is loaned to school for 4 weeks with a Schools ICT curriculum consultant come in for a morning workshop to model teach, support staff in getting up to speed and ensuring the technology is working as it should in school.
