STEM Day

'Plumstead Manor Year 8 students had the opportunity to be a part of the Greenwich STEM Day at Greenwich University. During the day our students worked with other students from a range of schools to take apart in a variety of activities. Unfortunately we did not get to the final, but four of our Girls won in their activities and were given an award for their achievement. All of our students did the school proud.'

  

'The trip to Greenwich University was a great opportunity for us to learn new things. We explored different aspects of science and technology. The three activities we completed included a robot activity, where we learned how to operate a robot and get it to move; the next activity we completed was a police case where we had to remember what a person looked like and then use a special app, which is used by police today, to recall what we remembered from the persons face. This seemed easy. However, when it came to actually completing the task it wasn’t very easy. The last activity we did was about science and how technology is used to help us; such as the activity that uses technology to help people who have lost a hand to create a hand that does everything a normal hand would do. We were able to see a demonstration of this working on another student who was connected to a robot hand which moved in the same way the student did.

 Aside from learning new things, like the term Tuberculosis and what it does to us we also had an opportunity to work and socialise with students from other schools rather than those who we know. It was also a great skill to learn to work with new people that we haven’t seen before.

 Overall it was a great opportunity and an experience that made my choice of career for the future broader and a time that I will never forget.'
