Last Tuesday (31st October) saw Oxford High School open its doors to local schools for the first JEMS (Juniors in Engineering Maths and Science) Challenge morning of this academic year.
The school welcomed Year 5 pupils from five different local schools to work alongside the school's own Year 5 pupils for the morning. It was also an opportunity for the older Oxford High girls to get involved - a Year 8 class were on hand to mentor the younger girls and boys.
It was an extremely busy and hands-on morning working on experimental design challenges. It provided such a valuable experience for the Year 5s, as well as a wonderful opportunity for the Year 8 girls who demonstrated leadership, humour and common sense.
The school is looking forward to welcoming more participants for the next JEMS Challenge next term!
