Science at Lord Blyton - STEM Learning

At Lord Blyton Primary School, we encourage our pupils to be actively involved and engaged in the STEM subjects- science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We are pleased to announce that we have been chosen to take part in a new and exciting venture - The Polar Ambassador Project!

In 2014 the Government announced a £200 million investment for a new polar research ship. The RRS Sir David Attenborough will enable world-leading research in Antarctica and the Arctic for the next 25 years.
Fully equipped with the latest instrumentation for the purposes of carrying out research in polar-regions, this vessel will have improved ice strengthened capability and greater endurance over existing polar research vessels. This will enable scientists and technicians to stay at sea for longer and study the polar environments during the Antarctic and Arctic summer months. It will also serve as a logistic support vessel for BAS research stations.
A state-of-the-art robotic subsea vehicle named Boaty McBoatface will be on board RRS Sir David Attenborough and will allow scientists to gather data remotely from places where humans are unable to go.
The project works with NERC, British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and others to use this historic occasion to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. They hope to use the build, launch and operation of RRS Sir David Attenborough and Boaty McBoatface to engage young people in science, enable them to understand the scientific process and enhance their understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) concepts. We are currently waiting to hear from our ‘Polar Ambassador’ and hope to start the project after the half term holidays. In the meantime, find out more through the following link:-
