Sparking STEM Fair Takes Over Academy

Paulina, Year 9, reports on our second annual STEM fair.

We held our second annual STEM Fair on Friday 15th March 2019. For those who don’t know, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We had many successful activities being run at the Fair, from analysing slime to dissecting hearts. There were also people from different universities who came and presented different activities.

One of the most popular activities was a murder mystery test. Students were shown the DNA of a 'murderer' and then were give five different suspects with different DNA patterns and we had to find the one that matched the original. For some it was easy but others struggled. One student even thought it was a trick!

Volcano table

Tamjid was one of the students volunteering at the Fair at the ‘Volcano Table’ (pictured above) along with Jaleel and Flori. The Year 7 student told us: “I thought it would be an exciting experience to create the volcanos to erupt in front of people and help them do it too.”

“I think it was a success because we had many activities and I personally thought it was quite an enjoyable time for me and the visitors.”

“I really enjoy science because you get to discover so many things about the world.”

Mountains of snacks

Students didn’t just love the activities, they also loved the refreshments. There were mountains of snacks including crisps, sandwiches, chocolates and more.

But more importantly this could not have been done without the head of the science department, Ms Bent, and of course the fellow teachers who gave up their time to help and come down to see our scientific event. Lastly, the students who also had given up their Friday evening to join in were really important too.
