The King's (The Cathedral) School

Peterborough

We have an external company called Wonderstruck coming in to run an interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) day. The day will begin with a show, exhibiting some interesting and exciting experiments and demonstrations.

Everyone will then split into teams for the Hovercraft Challenge.  They will build a fully functional hovercraft in this fast-paced workshop. Students will investigate the workings of a hovercraft by building a set prototype then, using their new found expertise, design and build their own version.

The day will finish with a series of races in groups of teams, followed by a Grand Prix race in the hall with the fastest teams from the group stages competing for the top spot.
