At Hillside Nursery School, we plan for STEM opportunities in all our enquiry-based learning projects. We believe it is vital to educate our children in the four specific disciplines - science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This provides our children with opportunities to problem solve based on real world applications.
We recently took part in the Primary and Secondary Engineer Leaders Award where the children explored the question ‘If you were an Engineer what would you do?’ Following a leg injury our Forest School leader struggled to access Forest School. The children, who thoroughly enjoy Forest School, decided to explore the question ‘How can I get to Forest School if I can’t walk?’
Two children were successful in receiving commendations for their entries into the Engineering competition and were invited to attend the Public Exhibition at the University of Central Lancashire (Preston). They both attended the exhibition with their families.
