STEM Ambassadors at Ballynure Primary School

By Ballyclare High School on 18 April, 2024



Our Sixth Form STEM Ambassadors, ably led by Mrs Young, support STEM related projects both in Ballyclare High and the wider community. This week they delivered a workshop that they had developed to P5 pupils at Ballynure Primary School.

During their workshop, titled “An egg-cellent space challenge”, pupils had to design and build a parachute that would safely deliver an astronaut onto Mars. They had to test different materials and designs, and learn about making predictions, recording results, and making conclusions. All groups were successful in landing their astronaut safely!
