Pupils at Monkhouse Primary School in North Shields enjoyed a 10 week STEM club delivered by Gary Eiles an Engineering Teacher at TyneMet College.

The Club, held every Friday afternoon, was developed to engage the pupils in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focused activities, which are not only fun, but give the youngsters an insight into the exciting opportunities open to them through STEM-related learning.

Topics for the sessions included; building structures to look at shapes and forces and making turbines and cars to investigate energy and power.

Gary Eiles, Engineering Teacher, TyneMet College said:

“I really enjoyed delivering the STEM Club, the pupils involved are always keen to find out more and returned with added enthusiasm each week.

“The sessions are designed to help the school pupils identify how STEM fits in to the everyday world around them and develop further interest in STEM related subjects.”
