A Welwyn Garden City primary school’s pupils enjoyed a “fun and inspiring” few days learning about science and engineering.
Youngsters and their families at Homerswood Primary and Nursery School soaked up the fun-filled week, which was organised by teacher Jo Curtis to inspire the children to consider jobs in the industry.
A school spokeswoman said: “Science has always held a high profile at Homerswood but we hoped that this week would inspire our children to consider the types of jobs and careers that are associated with their favourite subject.
“We have had lots of visitors talking to us about the jobs that they do and how exciting their days at work are.
“We have taken part in workshops by Setpoint and Junior STEM, which enabled us to build large tetrahedron constructions – almost four metres high – and to construct lego models and programme them to move and sing with computer algorithms.
“We have also built buildings of the future from everyday items.
“It was such great fun and such an inspiring week. We have definitely spotted some future scientists and engineers.”
