iAspire Year 5 week 1 - STEM

Our first week of in school sessions focused on STEM careers: Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We have discussed the different careers involving aspects of STEM; from Medicine to Astronomy and Geology to Research. Importantly, we discussed the skills you might need to pursue a successful career in STEM, including transferable skills such as listening, communication, teamwork and problem solving.

As part of our STEM week, we took on the STEM Challenge, where we had to build towers in teams, which supported a golf ball for two minutes. We had some ingenious designs and brilliant examples of lots of the crucial STEM skills we had talked about. Well done to all our amazing Year 5 students!
