Science Week: Aspire Inter-School Science Challenge

British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, taking place between the 5th and 14th March 2021.

This year, all schools are getting involved in Science Week by taking part in the Aspire inter-school science challenge, designed by Ms Matthews, the Aspire Lead Practitioner for Science. 

Aspire Inter-School Science Challenge

The theme of Science Week this year is 'Innovation'. As part of their remote learning, children from Bedmond Academy, Bovingdon Academy, Broadfield Academy, Hammond Academy, Knutsford Primary Academy and The Grove Academy have been given the challenge to design a product that could be used around the house to make their life (or their families lives) easier. An example of this could be a machine to help you make your bed, or an automatic sweeper.

With many children taking inspiration from Wallace and Gromit, some even building models of their creations (with help from their parents), we are looking forward to seeing all of their ideas.
