Royal Institution STEM Masterclasses

November 2022

Yavneh Sixth Formers excel at Primary Masterclasses yet again!

In May 2022, Ms. Alison Eves of the Royal Institution of Great Britain kindly came to Yavneh College to train 6th formers in the art of STEM Masterclasses. The Royal Institution is an independent charity set up to encourage the public to think more deeply about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The Royal Institution Primary Mathematics Masterclasses are extra-curricular problem solving/investigation enrichment sessions for Primary school students. The general aim of the Masterclasses is to inspire an appreciation of STEM that is long-lasting.

In November 2022, sixteen year 13s led sessions for year 6s at Yavneh Primary School. Their presentations were extraordinarily successful as these young minds were mesmerised by Advanced Level STEM concepts ranging from Algorithms to Molecular Structure Nomenclature. The year 6s were passionate about their learning and the year 13s put much effort, enthusiasm and preparation into their presentations which involved active learning strategies.

We are grateful to Ms. Alison Eves of the Royal Institution for training the sixth formers. Well done to our Sixth Formers for growing their pedagogical expertise and in doing so, making Yavneh College so proud yet again.
