Students help teach STEM masterclasses to Solihull primary pupils

STUDENTS from Lyndon School in Solihull, part of the Summit Learning Trust, have been taking part in STEM masterclasses thanks to the Royal Institution.

The Royal Institution is an independent charity creating opportunities for the public and scientists to explore science together.

The young people on the masterclass programme have developed workshops to present to their primary peers.

This term three of the groups have delivered their masterclasses to children from Ulverley School and Olton Primary School on lava lamps, rockets and elephants’ toothpaste.

The week before each session, they trial their lessons with Lyndon’s own Key Stage Three STEM club that runs every Monday.

This has allowed them to evaluate and make improvements where needed so that their Year 5 masterclasses are perfected.

Abid Butt, headteacher at Lyndon said: “I am so proud of our Year 10 students for the hard work they have poured into their STEM masterclasses.

“Having them teach their younger peers really focuses them and it’s lovely seeing the younger children absorb knowledge in an exciting and interactive way.

“I am also thankful to those who came in and put on the HS2 day with some of our older learners.

“We are always thinking ahead at Lyndon and it was great to bring careers in engineering to life for them.”
