Dudley South MP commends local school children on British Science Week

Children from the Bromley Pensnett Primary School proudly showed off their models and experiments to their local MP, Mike Wood, as part of the school’s British Science Week celebrations. 

British Science Week is aimed at raising the profile of the sciences within schools in order to stimulate children’s interest and capture their imaginations. 

Bromley Pensnett pupils took up the challenge, working to construct projects at home for a competition organised by the school’s science curriculum lead, Mrs Zoe Broom. 

Mr Wood met children, teaching staff and parents as former marine biologist and STEM Ambassador, Dr Stephanie Thompson, helped to choose the winning projects from amongst the many entries. Dr Thompson commented: 

“I have been really impressed by the hard work that the children have put into their projects. It is clear that the school works hard to promote achievement in the sciences.”  

The children, many of whom had expressed excitement about the opportunity to meet a Member of Parliament, were keen to explain their projects to Mr Wood. Following his visit to the school, Mike added: 

“It’s so brilliant to see staff and parents working together to engage the children in the wonders of science. We need local children to know that successful careers in the sciences aren’t just for other children in other parts of the country, they are for children right here in Bromley and Pensnett too. 

“That’s why it's so important to introduce children to the excitement of science at an early age, and I really want to commend all the staff and parents here at Bromley Pensnett for all their efforts to nurture and encourage this passion in the children.”

The competition entries will remain on display inside the school over the coming weeks as a celebration of the children’s hard work and achievement.
