Girls STEM day

Today our specially selected year 7 and 8 girls and year 9 Empower helpers tried to beat the flood by testing materials and building their own flood proof houses. Some were more successful than other with team ‘Marvin’ taking the crown. 

These girls used their science and maths know how to test the strength and absorbency of the matierials. They also used their geographical knowledge to choose the best location for their houses. All of this was presented at the end of the day before testing their homes against a watering can flood. 

A huge well done to the girls and a thank you to Miss Hampson for planning and running the event.
