Science Overview

After last year's sensational Mad Science Day and Fair, we decided that it had to be an annual event at English Martyrs'...

This year's theme: DISCOVER + EXPLORE linked perfectly with our school virtues of ACTIVE + CURIOUS

We are Polar Explorers!

We have been really fortunate to be involved in the Polar Explorer Programme launched by STEM Learning (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) which encourages and supports schools who are keen to raise aspirations and attainment in STEM subjects and aims to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. 

 

About the Polar Explorer programme

In 2014, the Government announced a £200 million investment for a new polar research ship. The RRS Sir David Attenborough will enable world-leading research in Antarctica and the Arctic for the next 25 years.

 

With funding from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) STEM are using the build, launch and operation of RRS Sir David Attenborough to bring an exciting new context to the teaching of STEM subjects.

 

Schools will gain the support of a Polar Ambassador, a specially selected STEM professional, who will help to enrich the teaching of STEM subjects in primary schools.

 

Thank you to Dr Simon Sheriden (specialist in Space Science) - our STEM Ambassador - who has supported us this year during exciting Science events.
