Year 5 had an amazing and informative time when they visited Casterton College Rutland today for a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths day (STEM). Their activities included exploring space inside an inflatable dome in the hall followed by a bridge building challenge in the D & T room. During the afternoon they combined engineering and maths by planning, costing and constructing a structure to hold a tennis ball off the table for 10 seconds. Finally into a science room for a chance to work with 'highly toxic' M & Ms in a series of chemistry experiments.
"It was a really fun and memorable day!"
"It was extraordinary in the dome.The pictures were huge!"
"The science was really interesting!"
