Thirty Year 9 Girls took part in an amazing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) event hosted by ACCENTURE at St James Park. A total of 400 girls attended the event representing 40 schools across the North East. The event was also replicated in London and Manchester, and various cities across the world.
Activities included a workshop to design and build a wind turbine and an “ideation” event where the girls had to come up with innovative ways to reduce food waste. The girls also had time at an Innovation Fair where they had the opportunity to experience many different STEM projects including experiencing virtual reality, electronic workshops, robot racing and much more.
The highlight of the day was the awarding of prizes for the most efficient wind turbine – KEVI designs won 1st and 4th position with Chantry 3rd place – a fantastic achievement for the Three Rivers Learning Trust!
