Third Annual APS KS2 Science Fair!

On Wednesday 26th of June, APS main hall was overflowing with nearly 100 amazing science projects from our local primary schools. The Science Fair day offered KS2 pupils with the best projects the opportunity to see others' projects, explain their work to the judges, complete a lab sessions at APS, see a science show and have a chance of winning an award and prize!

The quality of the projects was incredible, with topics like ‘how could we survive on Mars, ‘how will brexit affect fruit and vegetable standards’, ‘global pollution’, ‘robotics’, ‘non-newtonian fluids’, ‘density’ and many more! The students from Y3-Y6 explained their projects amazingly often with excellent practical demonstrations. Over the course of the day, the project stands were visited by 100s of KS3 pupils as well as staff and judges.

On the day we were also joined by seven teach maths and physics interns and five STEM ambassadors, this provided excellent careers links, guidance, and an unbiased supply of judges! As well as displaying their project, the primary students also attended two workshop sessions, 1 making bath bombs and the other on balanced forces. We could not have run this day without the help and support form a brilliant Y7 STEAM club and a team of Y10 and Y12 helpers so huge thanks to you guys too.

Thanks for a fabulous competition last week – thoroughly enjoyed it and was very impressed by the standard of the entries! It was great to have the STEM ambassadors supporting the event too, I hope to support them working with more local schools and competitions next year.

Thanks so much for doing the science fair, we enjoyed it the whole time! Archie & Hannah – Yr6
We loved the day and wish we could do it all over again now! Thandi, Jessica and Max
Just to congratulate you and your school team on arranging and running today’s mighty event at APS for so many of the local Primary Schools. It was a pleasure and honour to be able to witness such wonderful standards in science achieved by Ys6/5 and 4 children. Furthermore, you demonstrated just how it is possible to manage so many children so effectively (with help of your secondary school students) without a microphone. I know my fellow STEM Ambassadors were equally impressed. It was such a good initiative to get University students into the school for a few days to see how secondary schools operate and whether they might wish to think of teaching as a profession. It was also clear that the children really valued the chance to investigate science topics (many outside the set Primary syllabus) and gained considerable confidence in preparing and presenting their projects – mainly as teams, but some on their own. They also enjoyed themselves in the process in a different environment.Peter Holtby STEM ambassador
