Connecting STEM Collaborative Project Event

A group of our S2 & S3 pupils travelled to Lochside Academy who were hosting a Collaborative project event. The event was organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering Connecting STEM Teachers Programme with activities provided by the Army Outreach Team.

Pupils were involved in the elite skills activities run by the Army where pupils were split up and working with pupils from another two schools. There were various problem solving tasks using there STEM kits.

All pupils were given a careers presentation at the end which highlighted the various career routes in the British Army. They also highlighted how the skills they had used during the activities can be used more widely.
