On Wednesday 3rd July 2024, 60 year 8 pupils had the opportunity to be involved with a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) day.  

Firstly, the pupils were tasked with building the tallest paper tower using only paper. Many pupils believed this was ‘impossible’ at first but after hard work and resilience they built freestanding towers. Pupils then had to design their own futuristic train stations where they worked in teams and presented their train station in front of everyone. The last task the pupils had was to design and build a tunnel using paper straws and tape. The tunnel had to hold a 1 kg weight and allow the train to go through. The pupils involved were an absolute credit to the academy and should be very proud of their accomplishments from the day!
