Full STEAM ahead! Helicopter simulators, sports cars and transplant surgery.

Rose Hill School has just come to the end of an amazing week of activity focused on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) subjects, with the overarching theme of the week being disaster relief!

The week has been co-ordinated by Richard Mansfield and Barry Izzard, Head of Science & Design Technology, who said “These disciplines have a direct impact upon our daily lives, however we are facing a skills gap we need to inspire pupils to study STEAM subjects. The modern world is driven by data and technology it is imperative that we give our pupils the tools necessary not only to cope but to excel in the ever changing world we live in”.

The week was jam packed with activity including visits from BMW to showcase the new i8 (£100,000 of electric car), a Chinook helicopter simulator, a lecture on heart transplantation from a Great Ormond Street doctor as well as a whole host of team building exercises to: build bridges; evacuate casualties; build shelters; make parachutes and change wheels.

All pupils at the school aged 3-13 were involved in activities using team work, critical thinking, communication and experimentation to solve the challenges.

Head, Emma Neville, said “The end results of a week like this is that pupils who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process will become the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the future. We have had a wonderful week and STEAM week is an important part of our ongoing curriculum”.
