British Science Week at Parkgate Junior School - a celebration of all things STEM!
1st -7th March 2021
This year's theme is 'Innovating for the Future'.
We used our investigative skills and solved different problems and challenges.
Science is not reserved for geniuses. It's for everyone! You already share many of the characteristics and skills that STEM people have. It's all about unlocking these skills.
This week we have practised many STEM: being: curious, resilient, creative, hard-working and logical...to name just a few.
Still not convinced?
Watch Caliana's (5 Parrot) brilliant slide presentation: "Why science is for me".
