STEM activities

Room 8 tried some STEM activities today. This stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

These activities require hands-on problem-solving and are great for improving collaboration and communication skills. Activities were dinosaur excavation, wheel racer, skeleton building and mini microscope. We practised following instructions and persevering with a task until completion.

Here 'Wheel Racer' is a short video of the action.
