In their annual STEM Day, Junior School girls explored electric circuits, worked out how strong paper towels are, and how to throw an egg without cracking it.

The day-long event aims to foster a culture of experimenting with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in students from a young age, over a series of age-appropriate activities.

“Solving problems from an early age will allow girls to be more confident in later years, where they will have to solve more complex problems,” Head of STEM, Mr Andrew Draper says.

Science provider Jollybops ran a special show, covering everything from exploding balloons to shattering tennis balls.
