Maths and Engineering Week

Home » News » Maths and Engineering Week

As this year is the 'Year of Engineering', we are linking maths week to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to show the children how maths can be applied in other areas of the curriculum, and how engineering/STEM subjects are potential subjects and careers for all. The core purpose for an engineer is to 'make things work and makes things work better'. This means developing learning habits of mind (curiosity, open-mindedness, resilience and reflection) some of which are maths related and some are science related.

During this week, three STEM Ambassadors and representatives from Liverpool University will visit Audlem St James Primary School.

Ian Battersby is a software engineer who writes code and designs systems. He talked to the children about the role of an engineer and he related this to creating games such as those used on the CBeebies website.

Alan Bradley is a retired civil engineer. Alan previously was the Chair of the Cheshire Committee of the Institute of Civil Engineers. He looked at how to plan to build bridges.

Mrs Marshall is a mechanical engineer and came in to talk to year 5 and year 6 about her job. She set some tricky challenges using pi to get them to think about circles.
