Rose Hill's first even STEAM week

We are very excited to host our first Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) week which started on Monday. The overarching theme for the week is disaster relief!
The week started with the prep-school pupils (Year 3 – Year 8) working in cross-year teams to build a model bridge that spans a river so disaster relief supplies can be delivered by a remote controlled tank.
An engineer from Thales brought in a £100,000 flight simulator. Thales design and build state of the art flight simulators for both the military and civilian sectors. Pupils were challenged to ‘fly’ a Chinook helicopter. Chinook’s are the RAF’s heavy lift helicopter that is used to carry and drop disaster relief supplies into hard to reach areas of the world.
Throughout the week the whole school from Kindergarten to Year 8 have been building an egg drop device from a selection of materials. A scoring system will be used to find the most successful egg drop machine. The eggs will be dropped from the balcony in the school’s theatre!
At lunchtimes each tutor group will be putting forward a team (along with one or two staff teams) to take part in a wheel changing challenge. Rose Hill has a very successful electric car club called Green Goblins. The club has been racing the pupil built cars for the past six years across the South of England and one of the challenges the pupils have to do at the Goodwood event is to remove and replace all four wheels in as short a time as possible. This is a challenge to test team work, co-ordination and determination.
The week will culminate with an old Rose Hillian coming in to talk to the Y6 Green Goblin club along with some Y7 and Y8 pupils (members of the new F24 electric car team). Mr Sam Hignett is a Director of Jota Sport, one of the most successful motorsport teams in the UK. Mr Hignett’s company design and build LMP2 race cars that compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship which includes the Le Man 24-hour race.
