This year the STEM club teamed up with the Art Department to create STEAM. Pupils have been carrying out a number of projects/experiments relating to these subjects.
This is been a huge success for S1 and S2 where they have explored new areas of the curriculum in a fun way!
Please look through our exciting projects and successes.
Watch what we have done so far!
Keep up to date with the S2 STEM Elective's activities through their weekly blog...
REGIONAL STEM CELEBRATION
Our STEAM Club were asked to compete in the Regional STEM Celebration at Dumfries House earlier in the year. They had the fantastic opportunity of carrying out challenges set by local companies. They then went on to present to a panel of judges what they do in their STEAM Club. The judges were so impressed that WE WON! Prestwick Academy was named the 'Regional STEM Challenge Winners 2016'. The fantastic group of S1 impressed the judges with their enthusiasm and knowledge for STEM that they were awared with a trophy and a cheque to put towards more projects. We have now been invited to compete in the National STEM Celebration later in the year where they will compete against schools from all over Scotland! Keep your fingers crossed!
BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK
A group of lucky S1 from our STEAM Club were given the opportunity to attend lectures at Ayr College based around STEM. This was led by the students at Ayr College and was a fantastic morning for our S1.
