Churchill Academy

STEM celebrated throughout Academy

Years 7, 8 and 9 enjoyed a day of STEM on Monday with a range of activities taking place. There were visits from Bloodhound, the MOD, Sports, Science and Medicine lecturer Dr Isobel Moore,  Dr Nick Norman of the University of Bristol, a trio of optometrists from Weston, Mrs Tracy Machell a pharmacist, a paleo-biologist, AIRBUS and associates of Aerospace.

“Talking to Year 7 pupils they were enthused by their STEM experiences, all arguing over which workshop they thought was the best! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students for their involvement and all the staff who supported the day. It was an invaluable experience for our students. Helping them to see the potential of where education can take them is something we are striving for at Churchill. Developing relationships with industry partners and business’ really supports the work that we do in class.” said Yolanda Chadwick, Faculty Coordinator for Science at Churchill Academy.

Churchill Academy has recently been awarded national recognition for the work they are doing within STEM. Yolanda Chadwick was a finalist in the category ‘STEM Teacher of the Year’ for ‘engaging with STEM ambassadors and clubs for the benefit of both their pupils and school’.

Year 9 students went to Bristol Zoo for the day. Read the full report from George Rabin here.
