STEAMing along at Rose Hill School

The week was co-ordinated by Richard Mansfield, Head of Science and Barry Izzard, Head of Design Technology, who said “These disciplines have a direct impact upon our daily lives. 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 activities including bridge building, a whole school pulley challenge, helicopter models, drone racing, investigating famous inventors and the grand finale to the week was a circus skills session. The school also hosted the 21st Sir Humphry Davy lecture with a visiting speaker from University of Kent who spoke to a large audience of local schools about radioactivity and polymers.

Emma Neville, Head of Rose Hill School 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 continues to be an important part of our curriculum”.
