The P7 children had a wonderful time yesterday visiting Pizza Express and the STEM Skills base. They learnt about the various ingredients that go into pizzas, where they come from and how they are used. They then had the chance to try some of these, knead their own dough, add Passata sauce and cheese before it was baked in the pizza ovens. Everyone got a pizza to take away – many were enjoyed for lunch while some chose to take home and share with family.
After this, the children took part in two workshops at the STEM hub in Church Street. Firstly, they used the online TinkerCAD programme to design food based items that could be created in the 3D printer. Then, they had to work in teams to programme and engineer a robot to open a lego fridge and push food into it. This was challenging but, it was super to see the children using their problem solving and creativity skills to explore how they could move the robot and achieve the task.
