A new Science, Technology and Maths (STEM) Club will be starting at Fairmead next Tuesday because Fairmead has won £400 worth of Meccano sets!
Our maths teacher Kim Manton-Steer attended some advanced maths training at the national STEM centre in York recently, where she grabbed some information on competitions and bursaries.
Mrs Manton-Steer entered the competition run by Co-Lab Stem Clubs explaining that Fairmead wants to run its own STEM club and why we deserve some free Meccano.
Mrs Manton-Steer has already set students who are keen on STEM a challenge to design a new Meccano model. If one of our students wins this challenge then Fairmead could get £500 towards a class trip to the London Science Museum and the winning student’s model will be brought to life by a Meccano model maker.
The Meccano sets we now have in school include an aeroplane, motorbike, tractor and car plus all the motorised bits and pieces in a big 3 shelf storage case.
