This week at our Junior School, our pupils have celebrated STEM week and embarked on an exciting journey into the world of inventors and innovation. On Wednesday, they participated in a Science Show, presented by Ian Dunne from Do Science, which showcased some of the greatest inventions of all times.

Throughout the show, our pupils were introduced to some of history’s most brilliant inventors and their ground-breaking creations. Concepts such as energy, forces, and electricity came to life as they learned how these principles were harnessed to develop some of the greatest inventions of our time.

Balloon rockets, hot air balloons, slinky springs, Jeff the robot (one of Ian’s own inventions) and the amazing tesla coil were used to inspire our next generation of inventors.

At Eltham College, we believe in nurturing a passion for learning and exploration. Events like the science show with Do Science provide invaluable opportunities for our pupils to engage with the world around them and unlock their potential as future innovators. We look forward to continuing to ignite the spark of curiosity in every child who walks through our doors.
