I spent this morning with some very bright pupils from Years 5 and 6 of two rural primary schools – Evenwood and St Michael’s. I delivered a STEM workshop to two groups where they had to imagine they’d survived a Zombie Apocalypse and, if they drank contaminated water, they’d turn into zombies!
They were tasked with designing and building water filters, which we then tested using the deadly green “zombie water”. Their designs were excellent and, you'll be happy to know, everyone survived!
As well as learning about the importance of planning and designing a product, creativity and teamwork, they also found out about the new water pipeline being built close to their homes.
