Parkside Pupils awarded First Place at STEM Finals
Thursday 14th March 2019
On Friday 22nd March, Sophia Nicol and Maisie Yarrington were invited to the STEM works final. The Year 6 girls took part in a STEM Knex workshop, in December 2018 where they used Engineering skills to create a model railway station using Knex. They were selected to represent the school at the final.
The girls were up against more than 30 other schools from across Worcestershire and their teamwork shone as they recreated their Knex model. The judges commented on their amazing communication skills and their detailed, thoughtful planning.
It gives me great pleasure to announce, Parkside Middle School were awarded FIRST PLACE! The girls each won a 70 piece knex set to take home and 2 large sets for use within school.
A STEM club will be launched after the Easter holidays for the pupils to make use of the new Knex sets.
