The sky’s the limit at Primary School STEM event

Larne Grammar School were delighted to host Primary 6 pupils from Olderfleet PS, Moyle PS, Toreagh PS and Larne & Inver PS for their annual Numeracy based event.

Numeracy Coordinators from the five schools have been meeting over the past two years discuss how to manage the transition from Primary to Post Primary Mathematics as part of the Education Authority's Cross Phase Partnership Plan.

The highlight of this plan, however, is the opportunity for pupils from the primary schools to come in to Larne Grammar School to take part in a Numeracy based event.

This year's event took on a STEM focus as David from Sentinus challenged the pupils to design and build their own rockets that would then be launched outside.

The pupils created some fantastic designs, including some with banners and flags! The best performing rockets, however, were the most aerodynamic designs that included a nose cone and fins for stability.

Out on the Hockey pitch each group had the opportunity to send their rockets skywards with some incredible results. Indeed a number of the teachers present were slightly worried that the rockets may affect the quality of their satellite TV signal!

Mr Lambe, Numeracy Coordinator from Larne Grammar School, said: "It's wonderful to be able to bring so many young people together to engage in a STEM event. It was even better to see how enthusiastic they were to take part. Who knows, today could be the start of a journey for some of them that sees them be the first person to walk on Mars!"
