BP - Ultimate STEM challenge - wearable tech

The theme for 2020 is Wearable Tech.
Wearable technology is changing our world. From
smartwatches that monitor our health to shoes that can
change colour to match each outfit, the possibilities are
endless. This year, the Ultimate STEM Challenge invites
young people across the UK to come up with amazing
ideas for new wearable tech that will improve our lives
in the future.
The challenge is for 9 to 14-year olds across the UK.
Entrants will be judged in two categories: age 9-11 and
age 11-14. Three winners will be chosen from each
Category winners will be invited to take part in an
exciting and unique all expenses paid Hackathon day at
the BP Upstream Learning Centre in Sunbury! They will
discover incredible new developments happening in the
world of wearable tech before working with scientists,
coders and designers to bring their own designs to life.

Terrific Scientific





We were treated to a visit from 'Mad Science'.

Here are some photos of the Mad Science assembly


Throughout the Science curriculum children are given the opportunity to understand the world around them.  In Foundation Stage the children are provided with a range of activities and opportunities to explore the environment in order to grasp an understanding of the world around them.

In Key Stage One and Two the children explore Living Things, Materials and Physical Processes.  At St. Aidan’s children research, design their own experiments, ensure fair testing, observe, measure, record and draw conclusions.  Great Science lessons at St. Aidan’s include practical, hands-on investigation and enquiry; excitement, fun, inspiration and innovation; giving children the independence to question, explore and make discoveries – delivering the ‘Eureka’ moment!  And by doing this, ensuring every child is making progress as a scientist.
