The STEAM Powered Big Draw Festival  | #STEAMBDF2016

This year's theme is all about bringing together Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. STEAM fuses creative innovation, enterprise, digital technologies and the arts.

Artistic and creative thinking is essential to industries across the world.  Look around you. The chair you're sitting in, the computer you're using to read this and the building you're in, all began life as a drawing. Drawing is a universal language that helps to reshape our world.

This year, all pupils throughout school were involved in The Big Draw Festival on Monday 3rd October 2016. We focused on engineering and how cogs and gears help to make things move. Please have a look at the photos to see the huge piece of artwork that every child in the school contributed to!
