Igniting Imaginations with 5park!
Wales High School’s latest STEM event aims to ignite imaginations with its newest resource box from STEMunity, 5park!
Schools from across the region with Key Stage 3 students who are considered disadvantaged by the recent lockdowns, have been invited to attend the first 5park event at Kelham Island Industrial Museum, on Thursday 7th July 2022.
In partnership with STEM Learning Enthuse Partnership and the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Connecting STEM Teachers Programme, over 80 young people are expected to attend from 8 different schools in South Yorkshire.
All students will receive a 5park box that has been designed to include all the resources needed for budding young STEM innovators to get creative and practice their ‘Engineering Habits of Mind’ at home. The box includes five simple items, with instructions cards and blank cards for students to design their own activities.
The 5park event will also provide a variety of other opportunities for students to develop and explore their STEM skills; from bespoke interactive sessions hosted by Amazelab, to careers workshops, plus the chance to go and explore the Industrial Museum.
Jorden Birch, Enrichment and STEM Coordinator at Wales High School said:
“The purpose of this event is to support more young people in our community exploring careers in STEM professions. We hope to continue to create more STEM experiences for students in South Yorkshire using the innovative 5park resource boxes”
