Chain reaction STEM Day

30th March 2023
We had a great STEM day on Thursday - thinking about forces and cause and effect.  The children carried out an experiment to discover the fast vehicle and conditions to help the vehicle go faster. 
Then they worked in groups to create small chain reactions or ‘cause and effect’ machines.  This helped them to practise thinking scientifically, taking careful measurements and presenting data as well as planning and testing their ideas. 
In the afternoon they all worked together amazingly well to create a giant chain reaction machine that went from one end of the school to the other!  To see two videos of the morning and of the giant machine in the afternoon you can see it in the gallery tab or click here.
