STEM @ Oaklands

It has been a bumper year for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities with additional extra-curricular clubs, CREST awards, STEM curriculum days and STEM enrichment trips.

We would love students to continue with engagement in STEM activities and so have listed some ideas, for how they could do this at home, below.
There is an opportunity to enter a Save the Planet competition launched by BMT (deadline 26th June). Science teachers will put information about the competition on Teams and details are also attached. Please note – A parent or guardian must create an unlisted video on YouTube and send a link of the students unlisted video, along with a completed copy of BMT Permissions Form.
