Pupils at a Royston school set to work to build a bridge using skills they’d learnt from different subjects as part of a unique learning day.
Children at Roysia Middle School were given various challenges throughout the Bridging the Gap day which centred around STEM disciplines including science, technology, engineering and maths.
The challenges set for the eager pupils included science investigations, team building activities and quizzes.
Through the tasks, teams earned currency – STEMS – which they were able to use to purchase construction materials for their bridge.
A spokeswoman for the school said: “As always our pupils were amazing and really entered into the spirit of the challenges.”
