CREST Discovery Day: South Wirral High School

On the 26th of September, All About STEM visited South Wirral High School to deliver an Enrich my Classroom, CREST Discovery Day.

As North West Regional CREST Support Organisation we’re here to promote CREST Awards across the region and offer schools & clubs all the support they need to run this amazing scheme.

South Wirral students took part in the Enrich my Classroom, Discovery Award which encourages students to plan & design a state-of-the-art educational environment.

Through hands-on activities and experimentation, the children learned about coding, nanotechnology, ergonomics, magnetism & electricity… then it was time to design their own classroom of the future!

Students presented their innovative and creative ideas at the end of the session. They were passionate and animated about their projects which included a BPS (Bum Powered Seat!) and an iTable.

“Many thanks to the All About STEM team for the CREST North West Discovery Day at South Wirral. High energy, loads of enthusiasm, the students fed off it and had an amazing day. More schools should do it. Hope to see you soon!” – Martin Roberts, South Wirral High School

“Well done to all Year 7 students who took part in today’s CREST Discovery Day, and huge thanks to the team from CREST North West & All About STEM for a wonderful experience! STEMsational!” – South Wirral High School

“Well done South Wirral High and Year 7, everyone was so enthusiastic, focused and engaged. Congratulations on being a school dedicated to promoting STEM!” – All About STEM (CREST North West)
