Our hit STEM Club is back with an expanded programme for Essex 2020
Due to the COVID-19 situation, we will unfortunately have to postpone these sessions until the next academic year.
We are very pleased, however, to publish our "Simple Machines and Bridges" masterclass (originally scheduled for May) as a DIY activity pack. See our resources section to find out more.
This is part of Essex 2020 – a Year of Science and Creativity.
Students from the Greensward Academy attended thee 2019 IET Faraday Challenge, supported by the CSES
On 30th January 6 year 8 students attended the Faraday Challenge, run by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Chelmsford, supported by CSES. The students (Isabella Vitney, Noah Garner, Jack Kelley, Austin Bateman, and Charlie Bracken) were given a problem to solve (the details are sworn to secrecy, as this is part of a National Competition) making use of circuits and various construction/engineering materials. They were expected to work as a team; design, create and promote their idea, keep to a budget, and obviously, come up with a solution.
