Year 6 Girls’ STEM Project

On Tuesday this week, a group of Year 6 girls went to Exeter to take part in a STEM activity. STEM is a grouping of subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), that is under represented by girls.

At the session we learnt how to use minecraft to code. We wrote a series of instructions that trained an in game character to help stop fires by recognising what was a fire source and what was not.

We also learnt to use Paint3D. This piece of software enables you to create a 2-D object, transform it into 3-D and then see that object in the room with you – this is called Mixed Reality.
