Good first experience as a STEM Ambassador
Just had a good first experience of a STEM Ambassador activity at Coopers Technology College, Chislehurst, Bromley. I was an external observer / inspector of their teamworking during a set of practical Technology challenges (the tallest spaghetti/marshmallow tower; the furthest distance for a paper rocket; the fastest wind-blown vehicle). The students seemed to appreciate it, especially when the teacher introduced me at the start. It gave them improved focus on their teamwork. It was good to see a broad range of ages and abilities working together and mostly enjoying making things and analysing their performance.
