On Thursday P7 went to the Edinburgh College to a STEM workshop. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. There were 5 activities and the first activity was rocket cars.
We had to design a car that would go fast and then the instructors carved it how we wanted. After that we all went outside to test how fast they were after the instructors put the rockets in
After that we had the other 4 work shops which were: egg drop, math problems, computing and building a card bridge. We all enjoyed doing the activities, and working with P7s from other schools.
