At The Ridge, we feel it is incredibly important for children to understand that what they are learning can be applied to real life and can shape their future. One of the ways in which we do this is by running a STEM week once a year. The children work on a project over a week, using a variety of skills and knowledge that they have gained in Science, Computing, DT and Maths in order to create an end product. Each year group has a different focus and the children enjoy moving around the school at the end of the week, looking at each other's work.
Children also have the opportunity to meet inspirational members of the real STEM community, learning about their career paths, the roles they play and the skills that are required to do work.
This year's STEM projects will be carried out over Term 6- keep up to date with this page
and our Twitter feed to see some of the fantastic work the children produce!
