iDiscover Week @ Sir Thomas Abney
Nov 19 – Nov 23 all-day

iDiscover Week

iDiscover week at Sir Thomas Abney, in partnership with Inspire, introduces Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers to primary school children through a week of work-related activities.

Research shows that pupils decide early in their school careers that science is ‘not for them’. Through early exposure to role models from STEM industries who look and sound like them, the aim is to change perceptions and challenge stereotypes, showing that gender or ethnic background is not a barrier to future success.

STEM subjects are brought to life through workplace visits, engaging experiments and hands-on activities, with opportunities to meet a wide range of volunteers. This week, pupils across the school will try out a range of amazing activities such as programming robots, create torches, coding computer games, extracting and testing DNA and much more!
