Education, Business Partnership South STEM Fair

EBP (Education, Business Partnership South) are a registered charity, established in 1997 we have 20 years’ experience in providing career inspiration, preparation and experience to young people that is accredited by the Matrix award.

The fair promoted STEM careers for young people aged 9 -11 Schools from across the South Coast.

What we did : Make a straw boat and drive it on smoke and water!

The students had to make straw boats that float and designed around the engine which was a Sphero Ball,  they then have to check if the boat floats, hold the engine and  able to drive around the track.

The paddling pool is filled with water and dry ice to create a smoky fun atmosphere.
