Dr Rinke and Northumbria University Visitors

Year 6 had a visitor from a very special STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) ambassador yesterday. Dr Rinke Vinkenoog is a lecturer at Northumbria University and he came in to teach the children about evolution and adaptation. Rinke was also Mr Bell's lecturer when he was at University studying for his MSc in Biotechnology seven years ago.

 

Chris, a STEM ambassador and student of Rinke's at Northumbria University, also came to help deliver the session. It was great to have 'real scientists' share their incredible knowledge and expertise with us. Have a look at the 'Curriculum in Action' link below for more information on the year 6 work on adaptation, including some great Charles Darwin films.
