The STEM project was organised over six weeks. Year 7 pupils met with Year 8 pupils at the start of the project and at the end of the project. In between times pupils worked independently within their own schools on similar activities. At the end of the project pupils form both schools came together to share and evaluate their learning.

The project was set as a challenge for Year 8 pupils. They had to create and design an interactive teaching aid to make the learning about the brain interesting and enjoyable for Year 7 pupils.
