In celebration of British Science Week, educational resource provider, Learning Resources, of North Lynn, is hosting a free Primary Science Evening for Norfolk schools.

The event for local schools, enterprises and resource providers will take place at Howard Junior School on Thursday, March 16, 5pm-6.30pm, when there will be a chance to share ideas about bringing science, design technology, computing and maths to life in primary classrooms.

The evening is designed to offer an opportunity to learn about STEM with guest talks from the Norfolk STEM Centre, Howard Junior School and STEM in Action. Those attending will be able to try out the latest science products and activities designed in line with the National Curriculum and hear from neighbouring schools about their own science initiatives, achievements and plans.

Howard Junior School will be explaining how they introduced STEM by developing a dedicated STEM classroom called the Spark Lab. Lee McCowen, digital support officer, said: “At Howard Junior School, we want the best possible future for our learners. STEM occupation opportunities are expanding rapidly. We are setting the groundwork now so that our learners are ready for whatever jobs the future will bring.”

Refreshments will be provided and each attendee will receive a STEM goodie bag. The event is free and the invitation is open to anyone with an interest in primary teaching and learning.
