STEM Day with Dave Lydford

It seems almost everyone enjoys playing with ‘Lego; and the children here at Hartington are no exception and on Monday 18th March they enjoyed a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Day. This was delivered by Dave Lydford, who built the world’s first Wells Dressing, all from 20,000 pieces of Lego!

The children enjoyed building a range of different models, which included, racing cars, windmills and animals which moved! The sessions which continued throughout the day were thoroughly enjoyed and accessed by all the children.

The model making instructions were comprehensive and easy to follow and if a child was unsure another would quickly step in to help. Dave commented on the family atmosphere within the school and how the children were so kind and supportive of each other and quick to praise each other’s achievements.

The event was so successful that the children requested if a Lego Club could commence in the summer term, obviously led by Dave! What a great way to begin a new week and the children were able to practice skills taught within IT in such a dynamic way.
