The theme for this year’s event was Innovating for the Future and pupils at Fairfield Endowed Junior School enjoyed the session provided by the company Junior STEM.

The children had the chance to build Lego WeDo mechanical models and learn to program sensors, motors and lights to bring them to life.

They also thought about what new innovations they would like to see in the future and the sessions also provided the pupils with ideas of what they may wish to do in the future when they are older.
