On Tuesday 8th November 2022, Year 6s from Funtington primary school, visited Bourne to engage with their latest STEM afternoon. To begin, the children learnt about green electricity and were tasked with creating a wind turbine that would generate electricity. They had to put together their own turbine with cogs and doweling while also using knives safely to cut thick cardboard. When they were ready they tested them with a big fan to see if they would make energy.
After that task the children then learnt how to solder. They were given wire and a soldering iron and were asked to create bracelets. They also had to strip the wire themselves with clippers before attaching them around their wrists.
Fun and Learning was had by all the students.
