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.
