British Science Week (STEM Week) is a programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
At Perins we often have guest speakers which the students thoroughly enjoy.
There are usually a number of different science activities for students to take part in throughout the week. They have the opportunity to explore areas of science and an array of different activities which they may not have encountered before. Previous activities have included dissection, making robots, building machines, crafting DNA necklaces and working in teams to build bridges.
The week somtimes includes educational trips outside the school. One year students visited Marwell Zoo, where they participated in workshops learning about natural selection and why variation is important for species survival. It is always a fantastic week of scientific discovery for the students, which gives them the opportunity to take their science learning beyond the classroom.
