BAE Systems STEM Roadshow
This week students in Year 7 and 8 were taken on a journey from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space when the BAE Systems STEM Roadshow came to Carisbrooke College! The team who represent BAE Systems, The Royal Navy and The Royal Air Force, put on an exciting and informative show. The students were given lots of information and facts about how engineering allows us to explore unchartered areas such as space and under water and the science and technology needed to survive in these extreme environments.
Students were able to participate in a variety of challenges, where their communication and team work skills were put to the test. At the end of the show a five metre diameter model of the Sun was inflated next to a marble. This allowed students to see a scale representation of the Earth, to show just how huge the solar system is.
It was great to see our students so engaged as they learnt and interacted with the show. We hope the roadshow has inspired our students to consider the fantastic career opportunities in STEM!
