STEM and Cyber Experience

Year 10 Students at the Stem and Cyber Experience 

Some of our Year 10 pupils made the most of their half term by taking part in a 4 day STEM and Cyber Experience delivered by The Gloucester Aspiration Programme (GROWS). Activities included programming a robot to carry out a challenge, a technology teardown – stripping apart common household technology to explore and discover its components and breaking into an iPad to deciphering cryptic messages. All this culminated in at trip to the Cheltenham Science festival to listen to industry experts talk about carers in STEM, followed by time in the Discovery Zone getting ‘hands on’ with virtual reality, aeronautical engineering and much more!

GROWS are running a summer taster experiences in Crime Scene Investigation and Engineering. More details can be found at or
