Students Use SMART Application at STEM Event
“Discovery Club” students were invited to attend a STEM event at City College, where students could take part in a range of exciting activities based around “SMART” applications. This is what they had to say.
“I really enjoyed the science stem trip. There were many fun activities but my favourite one was the guess how old you are, what dog do I look like and what celebrity do I look like? It was very funny and shocking when it said that Mr Dalton looked like he was 65. I was shocked when it said I looked like I was 28. On the celebrity activity, the computer app said Mr Dalton looked like George Clooney and then it said he looked like Brad Pitt. The computer app said that I looked like Rico Rodriquez.
The stem science trip, has been a very good experience and I hope to attend more trips like this”. Simran Bains Year 7
“ ‘Dash’ is a Bluetooth robot that kids can programme. For example you can make it flash it’s lights. ‘Dash’ is also useable on a smartphone. In my opinion, this was the best activity because it involved new skills and technology”. Yadunanthan Ravikanthan Year 7
“On another table there were a set of laptops, where you had to guide a robot through a course by pre-programming the steps it needed to take. It took a while to get the hang of it. I found it really entertaining and it really got your brain working”. Harry Kavanagh Year 7
