An Aberdenshire primary school held a Science and Technology Business Breakfast last week to learn and share ideas about science, technology, engineering and maths.
Head teacher, Fiona Eaton said: “Our whole school is focusing on science, technology, engineering and maths and we wanted to do something which enabled the children to share their learning.
The event took over most of the school and the children themselves designed the brochure, invited parents and determined the menu for breakfast. Mrs Eaton continued: “The pupils’ work was on display and we had 14 experts including dads. The event has been run as an enterprise, the children wrote to the parents and invited them to come and they all wore lanyards with name badges. This is a great way to get dads in to share their expertise.”
As well as displays and activities, there were representatives from Chevron, Subsea 7, The University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University OPITO, BMI, Peterhead Power Station and a travelling computing teacher with expert talks on Green Energy, Fixed Wing Aircraft and Oil Rigs.
The breakfast was hailed a resounding success by all that took part.
