Chidham Parochial Primary School attended the Bourne Community College for an afternoon of STEM activities. This started in Science where the students focused on Microscopes and Magnification, looking at onion cells, drawing what they could see and working out the total magnification on the cells that they were drawing. The students went onto Maths where they had to do complete scale drawings in magnification, which led them onto computer science where they had to complete a series of coding to achieve a goal in educational Minecraft.
Some feedback from the children on the day were:
“My best bit today was looking through the microscopes and playing Minecraft.” Jamie
“This school is nice.” Theo
“Today was exciting, it was lots of fun. I got to learn lots of things in the STEM subjects.” Florence
“Playing Minecraft is fun, I am impressed with this school, I like coming up here.” Charlie
“I liked looking at the onion cells and seeing the nucleus.” Liberty
“My favourite lesson was Science, because I’ve never used a microscope before today.” Evie
