Our Academic Manager, David, has been working hard to find the best science, technology, maths and engineering workshops for students at King Edward’s School (aged 10-13) this summer. Led by experts from across the country, students will get a passion for science from a series of hands-on sessions tackling a new theme each week.
Week 1 (9th – 16th July) – Architecture, Maths & Design led by Architecture Workshop Cambridge
Students construct models of the London and York Millennium bridges, exploring the differences and similarities between the two types of suspension bridges.
Week 2 (16th – 23rd July) – Space, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Mechatronics led by the National Space Academy and The STEM Workshop
In the first session, students will take part in a Physics Masterclass with the National Space Academy. In the remaining two sessions, they will be introduced to mechanical and electrical engineering by the STEM Workshop through designing and building a range of mechanical devices and modifying these mechanisms to see how they can be automated and controlled.
Week 3 (23rd – 30th July) – Architecture, Maths, Design & Disaster Relief by Doctor Martin
Students will develop their knowledge of the scientific process and use of practical construction skills through a series of technical challenges such as building a giant tetrahedron, competing in teams to build the tallest tower and overcoming technical challenges to performing the role of a disaster relief team to deliver food and medical supplies.
