We are working towards our Discover Primary Science and Maths award again this year. We will record everything we get up to during the year on these pages, in the hopes of achieving the award for yet another year. We love using a ‘blog’ type entry for DPS. It has really enhanced our ICT skills and has encouraged a greener environment!
The following steps have to be completed in order to win the DPS Plaque of STEM Excellence:
STEP 1: Science
Provide evidence of the children engaging in hands-on science investigations in school (indoors or outdoors).
STEP 2: Technology (ICT)
Provide evidence of how the children used technology as part of their school work. By technology in this step we mean Information Communications Technologies [ICT].
STEP 3: Engineering
Provide evidence of how children investigated engineering in class or in the local area.
STEP 4: Maths
Provide evidence of how the children used their maths skills.
STEP 5: STEM Showcase
Provide evidence that the children have presented and explained their STEM work to others (beyond their own class)
