On the 4th July, 12 students from across year 8 and year 9 went to Havering Sixth Form College for a STEM challenge.
They had to participate in 3 challenges out of 4 which included
- E-FIT a police software allowing the students to create an image of a suspect following a crime
- Robotics – students had to use coding to instruct their robots to circulate a map without losing marks or moving out of the given boundary
- Vehicle Activity – students were provided with material to build a vehicle using batteries where they were then competing with each other from the start to finish line
- Diagnostics -this was focussing on a patient with inflamed lungs – students were provided with urine samples, sphygmometer, heart rate monitor and patient history -students had to discuss and find out the final diagnosis of this patient.
We had Kevin Puski 8H and Simrit Bal 9C which won the E-FIT challenge.
- Kevin Puski – “I learnt a lot during the activities and it was a phenomenal experience”
- Saarah Munshi – “I enjoyed all of the activities and would love to show my talent in more of these”
- Tharanki “It was a wonderful experience competing against students from other schools in a subject I enjoy the most”
