Cressage pupils STEAM ahead

Year 6 pupils from Christ Church Primary in Cressage entered a world of virtual reality recently. In a joint project with STEAM Centre UK for a Domesday Project, they combined their love of all things ‘gadget’ and their technical know-how with their history knowledge. They visited the National Trust’s Attingham Park to record scenes from the inside of the mansion and then used virtual reality tools to help other children experience its delights.

“This project has been great as children have seen how new technologies will change visitor experiences in the future,” says the school’s head Mrs Tracey Cansdale. “As well as providing a traditional curriculum, we need to prepare children for a fast-changing world and this experience has enabled them to see some of the jobs they might be doing if they go into tourism in the future.

“We are keen that children see some of the economic benefits of technology, even at this young age, as they will be entering a world of work which uses technology for many things now done by people, and we need to prepare them to be thinking, creative participants in developing new uses for IT.”
