British Science Week 2021: Innovating for the Future


Our children have enjoyed celebrating British Science Week, learning all about this year's theme, innovating for the future! They have learnt about what innovation is and some important innovations that have changed the world. Year 4 were even lucky enough to take part in a Zoom virtual workshop, learning about some incredible innovations from the invention of the wheel to Covid-19 vaccines! 


Our children have also had a go at becoming innovators themselves, designing their own RoboBugs to suit a particular role, from search and rescue bugs to builder bugs! They learnt about some incredible innovations that have been created in 2021 such as floating farms, 3D printed food and even smart face masks!


We have had some wonderful entries into the British Science Association's poster competition from a recycling sorting machine to a remote controlled robot dog! See some of our wonderful posters below.
