TITAN Technology Fair 27th March 2014

April 9, 2014 in Front Page News by S Dooley

On the 27th of March, 10 year 7 students attended the TITAN Technology Fair showcasing the work they have been involved in as part of this year’s STEM Club. This is what they thought of the fair:

“I think presenting our cars in the fair was really special and I got to see loads of cool gadgets – like a smart TV were you can see two shows at once – and we got lots of free pens and mugs. And we got to see a 3D printer and loads of working mechanisms”

“It was brilliant. I loved every minute of it. At first we setup our stand to showcase our working cars. Then we watched presentations about Siemens, BT, virgin media and also Samsung. While Samsung were showing off their Samsung galaxy gear watch and brand new TV which you can watch 2 different programmes or movies or music at the same time, BT were talking about how important telecommunications are when disasters happen. It was really cool and would recommend the trip to anyone who is interested

“I liked the free cups and pens and BT ball, making the guitar man and presenting our cars. I also liked the 3d printer because I got a batman logo in 3d and the formula 1 car was cool because it was real. The electronic car and the magnet that made you feel an electric shock when you touched a friend I also really loved”

“The STEM fair was fun because we got to interact with other displays and get a lot of free items. At the fair there were other schools and there were companies which were: Samsung, BT and Virgin media. Each company had a presentation and told us about what they do and how they do it. Also, Samsung’s presentation was very interesting as some of us got to use the products ourselves as a demonstration”

“The STEM Fair was fun because there was activities to do that were organised by different schools and companies. There were also free objects that we can use in our daily lives. There were presentations about phones and jobs and what that company does or how they improved their phones. I think the best part of it was that I have learnt a lot of things about STEM”
