During our first year as a partnership we will be offering Light & Sound CPD to our primary school teachers and then ongoing support in the classroom by KS5 science ambassadors who will offer science clubs. We also hope to engage our primary school children with some fun physics shows and an annual science fayre. Secondary school children will enjoy a hands-on day of coding and robotics and we will run competitions throughout the year to ensure students access STEM outside the classroom. Year 11 will have a turn at Careers Speed Dating with STEM Ambassadors and we are very excited about working with Isaac Physics to offer workshops on Vectors and Exponentials to our A-level STEM students. We will continue to work alongside Bayfordbury Observatory and their outstanding outreach team to boost confidence in the A-level syllabus.
