With science week fast approaching, the organising committee are in the process of coordinating preparations for the culmination of activities on the final day.
Our Stem Ambassadors have already been designated their schools and should be liaising with them in order to arrange visiting them and discussing their project ideas and designs.
The judges have also made themselves available on the day, they have a variety of backgrounds to enable the judging process to be a fair as possible. Our thanks to the StemHub for helping and those to whom we have again called upon again to assist.
This event would not be possible without the aid of many individuals including support from local businesses, council members and back ground staff.
The final day begins with the presentation of each schools project to the judging committee. We have also secured STEM activities which are being provided by local businesses during the morning for the students to partake in, but we don’t want to give too much away now, you’ll have to come back afterwards for our full report.
After lunch, I will be inviting Minister for Employment Mims Davies and Richard Cox from Burgess Hill Business Parks Association to present a selection awards. STEMHub are also donating books to the overall winning school, these books tell stories to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists and each student will receive a certificate of attendance.
For the finale and once presentations have finished the children will be provided with a professional childrens science show containing many wonders for them to ‘wow’ over.
We are looking forward to the first Burgess Hill science week and hope our schools enjoy themselves.
