The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

STEM

Students are given an opportunity to apply cross curricular links, through studying STEM at key stage 3. Through merging Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, the pupils are set challenges and problem solving tasks, where they must find a solution through putting into practice valuable life skills such as teamwork, leadership, debating, discussing and listening. 

Example projects include: a car powered by a balloon, a bridge manufactured from newspaper to hold the heaviest weight, a paper plane launcher, a rescue car, water irrigation system and water rockets. 

This is a hands on subject which utilises a wide range of technology to find a solution to a given problem. 

Staff: Mr G Hake, Mr Rayner and Mr Miller
