Crystal Maze Challenge accepted by local primaries!

Last week saw our inaugural STEM challenge for deaf and partially hearing Year 5 and 6 pupils from schools in Hackney and Islington.  Twenty five pupils from six different primary schools attended and participated in solving maths puzzles, cracking codes by heating chemicals, driving remote control cars following  directions from team mates  and cooperating with each other to climb through a spider’s web. The afternoon ended with students climbing the Petchey climbing wall.  The pupils really enjoyed themselves and here is some of the feedback:

 

“It was one of the best days of my life.”

“I liked science because we did fun experiments.”

“I learnt that teamwork is good to achieve different tasks.”

“I learnt about chemicals and how they change colour.”
