BAE Roadshow Electrifies Students at Brune Park and Rowner Junior School!

The UK’s longest-running science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) roadshow, the BAE Systems Roadshow, brought its electrifying 2024 program to Brune Park and Rowner Junior School!

This interactive experience, delivered by the Education Programme at BAE Systems, the Royal Navy, and the Royal Air Force, captivated Year 7 and 8 students, along with all of Rower Junior’s pupils. Launched in 2005, the BAE Roadshow is a national program designed to spark excitement in STEM subjects for students aged 10 to 13.

The “Electricity” themed roadshow offered a fun and educational exploration of this essential resource. Students learned how electricity is generated, how it works, the difference between conductors and insulators, and its crucial role in our world.

This engaging presentation wasn’t just informative, it was interactive! Students and staff participated in quizzes, tackled exciting challenges like building circuits and powering windmills, and even experienced the electrifying power of the Van Der Graff Generator.

The BAE Roadshow’s visit was a resounding success, sparking curiosity and igniting a passion for STEM in the students of Brune Park and Rowner Junior. Who knows, maybe this electrifying experience will inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, and innovators!

Here’s what some of the students had to say:

  • Alfie, Year 7: “The roadshow was like a science adventure Seeing all the experiments first-hand was very exciting. The part where we got to actually build circuits and see them work helped me understand them better.”
  • Sophie, Year 8: “It was a really cool way to learn about electricity. The bike generator was the highlight for me – it was so funny! It’s really made me think about becoming an engineer in the future.”
  • Charlie, Year 7: “I loved how the presenters made everything so interesting and easy to understand. The interactive parts were the best because we didn’t just sit and listen; we actually got to do things!.”
