Students enjoy RAF STEM challenge

On Thursday 16th May forty-one Year 7 and 8 girls took part in an exciting STEM challenge day put on by Camouflaged Learning and the RAF. 

The event was part of a competition which aims to encourage students to work on problem solving and consider engineering as a subject.  During the day, the students were often pushed out of their comfort zones, working in teams that consisted of students other than their friends and they took part in challenging activities that taught them how to think out of the box and problem solve. 

Five of the girls, Sophia, Kumi, Isobel, Gracie and Edith, were chosen to go forward to represent CNS with other schools in the competition in the final, which will take place at RAF Marham on 5th July. Three others, Hana, Maddy and Charlotte were chosen as runners-up. 

"Everybody really enjoyed the day and the enthusiasm was infectious. The providers were so impressed by how the girls interacted and worked together, they were absolutely brilliant, well done to them! Mr Akroyd, Careers EIAG
