Primary seven pupils from across the city spent a day at The Wallace High School recently taking part in an innovative event encouraging a love of Mathematics.
The day long workshop, organised by Sentinus, is part of Wallace’s High STEM programme – three months of exciting events aimed at promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
The Primary Seven students were mentored by Wallace High School Sixth Formers who are studying Maths at A Level.
Wallace student Hannah Wilson commented, “We had a really fun day and our guests really enjoyed the range of problem solving activities which Sentinus had organised. I’m considering a career in Primary School teaching so it was a great opportunity for me to work with young people and help enthuse them with my love of Maths.”
Taylor McLea from Knockmore Primary added, “It was an exciting day and a nice way to get to know people from other primary schools too.”
Head of Mathematics in The Wallace High School, Bill Wilson, concluded, “I’d like to thank Sentinus for organising such an inspirational event – we hope all our visitors enjoyed their day in Wallace
