The Big and Little STEM challenge finals 2022 were held at Discovery Park on Friday 8th July and it was a truly inspiring event. All of the young people involved are winners but our overall champions were Hadyn Smith & Eva May Stone from Towers School and Sixth Form Centre, in the Big STEM category, with their Sustainable and eco-friendly large transport vehicles project. And the Little STEM winners were Bertie Forsyth, Ella Waller, Daniel South and Dexter Harris from Y5 Eco Science Club at Deal Parochial CofE Primary School with their answer to alternative cling film!
We all know that encouraging children to take up STEM subjects is essential for all of our futures and so initiatives like this are so important. The idea is not to make it a chore; children, young people and schools are doing some great stuff all the time and we just want to give them a platform to showcase this. Far too often school’s social media celebrates the arts and sport – The BIG and Little STEM challenge gives our scientist of the future a chance to shine as well!
