STEM DAY at Brook Green


Yesterday, Thursday 14th March was a whole school annual STEM day. Our theme for this year was the life and work of Stephen Hawkings. As Stephen Hawking was not only a famous physicist and sufferer of ALS, a type of Motor Neuron Disease, he was a well known Non believer in God. With this in mind we combined the day with one of our RE days. Tim from Humanist UK came in to talk to use about being a Humanist. 

We also had a visit from David Whitle from the Plymouth Astronomical Society, who talked to students in years 9 and 10 about the planets in our solar system, using different types of fruit to demonstrate the size differences. 

Students completed a range of activities including exploring space with VR, explore the distances between the planets in sheets of toilet roll and designing the must have gadget for 2119.
