Flooding showcase at Fernielea primary school
We were delighted to be invited along to Fernilea Primary school in Aberdeen on the 17th of March to watch their 'Flooding Showcase' event. The Primary 5 -7 pupils spent a week learning about flooding via the free STEM Resource Kit, provided by the Scottish Council for Development and Industry. The week ended with a series of demonstrations and diplays, where all of the pupils shared what they had learnt with the other classes. It was a huge success, great fun and it definately raised awareness of flooding to the next generation of budding engineers.
A big thank you you to Lisa Walker (Head Teacher) and Kate Gardiner (Principal teacher) for the invite!
