Woldingham welcomed just over 50 girls from our local primary schools, St Francis’, St John’s and Woodlea, for a day exploring science, technology, engineering and maths related topics. In science we experimented with diffusion using Skittles, made robots from toothbrushes and learnt about tooth enamel by making alginate beads - slippery little things indeed! Teams were put through their paces with the magic square challenge, learning how creative and collaborative skills are so essential in maths. Pupils were challenged with the ethics involved in AI, coming up with some remarkably nuanced and astute responses. Lasers, dye sublimation and 3D printing came together in the construction of photosensitive bracelets. Our Lower Sixth Sports Leaders showed us the value of teamwork, risk taking and resilience, and the day culminated with a rousing performance from our Year 7s in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Many thanks to our highly organised Year 10 team leaders, Pippa, Luba, Leila, Daisy, Trista, Jemima, Ella and Rhea. Thanks also to our indefatigable Lower Sixth Sports Leaders, Fede, Grace and Harriet.
