Leeds City Academy


RAF Year 7 STEM Day

On Wednesday 13th November every Year 7 student took part in an RAF STEM day at Leeds City Academy. 

The workshops, delivered by hi-impact consultancy, were high quality, practical and innovative.  Every student engaged with two workshops: -
  1. The Go Kart Challenge – A workshop that introduces theories of lean manufacturing in a competition that will get teams to perform in the fastest and leanest time possible.
  2. Engineering Challenge – This is a kit-based activity that encompasses following a design, interpreting results and drawing conclusions, revising plans and control and management of variables.

The activities were underpinned with the key STEM skills such as problem-solving, creativity and intellectual curiosity.
