Year 5 pupils blast into space with Noadswood

July 9, 2014

“An outstanding opportunity to inspire students to become the next generation of innovators.”

This June, nearly 300 local year 5 pupils came to Noadswood for our annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week. This week saw pupils working with Noadswood students as well as industry experts and Winchester Science Museum. Not only was this a fantastic week for our feeder schools, it also provided invaluable opportunities for years 7-9 students to develop their leadership skills. They received specialist training from Winchester Science Museum and were instrumental in helping the week to be such a terrific success.
The theme for the week was Space and there were a wide range of activities centred around this. Activities ranged from designing and launching water rockets to controlling and programming Lego mind storms and designing moon buggies. The year 5 pupils also got to experience life at Noadswood through a range of taster sessions. These included; creating space-themed t-shirts in Art, experimenting with raisins and lava lamps in Science and experiencing Noadswood’s state of the art sporting facilities. It was an incredible experience for everyone involved!
