Pupils at Kettlefields Primary School are taking a lead in science, technology, engineering and maths. For the past couple of years school governor, Tim Owen, has run an inventors’ club at the school.
This year working with the school’s deputy head, former research scientist Alicia Gadsby, the group has been re-branded as a STEM club.
And the inquiring young minds have received a boost for their latest project using Lego Mindstorm from Dullingham Parish Council which donated the £300 needed to buy the kit and 84-year-old Stetchworth businessman Bill Gredley who gave £1,000 to support the club.
And on Tuesday, in celebration of British Science week pupils in the school’s Badgers class took part in an Earth Sciences Inspire day learning all about the science behind earthquakes and volcanoes as part of their Extreme Earth topic helped by three visiting scientists who ran the special day for them.
