Today 12 pupils participated in the OASES STEM ‘Supergrid’ challenge at Parkside Academy. They all had fun designing and building miniature wind turbines in their teams.
Once built, they competed as a European country using sophisticated data
capture software to determine the most successful team. The children worked together brilliantly in their teams solving problems successfully and methodically.

Well Done to all the children involved in this event! I am sure we have some budding engineers and scientists at St Cuthberts.
