6th Formers lead Royal Institution STEM Masterclasses

We are proud once again to host the Royal Institution Masterclasses, a series of hands-on interactive sessions aimed at opening children’s eyes to the excitement of Mathematics, and for the first time, Engineering.

For the next few weeks, a number of Year 4 and Year 5 pupils from our Prep School will share this memorable experience with pupils from our local community, Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School, Greenfields Primary School, Priestmead Primary School and Glebe Primary School. These talented, motivated and curious students will be challenged and inspired to explore the world of Mathematics and Engineering. They will collaborate with and encourage each other and every student will have the opportunity to make meaningful progress in their own learning journey.

Each masterclass, which will focus on a different theme, will be delivered by our trained Sixth Form students who prepared for their leadership and teaching role with professors from the Royal Institution and Royal Academy of Engineering who spent the day at St Helen’s.

We are committed to our outreach and partnership work and to sharing our expertise and facilities with our local community, and are thrilled to be able to host this event in our new STEM Centre.

We hope that events like this will give the girls the self-belief and confidence to continue developing their mathematical and engineering skills and to encourage them to think of themselves as the mathematicians and engineers of the future. We look forward to sharing their experiences!
