Hi everyone,

I hope the first full week back is going smoothly for you all. I am loving my maternity leave, Lara, Sonny and I are enjoying ourselves tremendously. It is actually so busy looking after a baby, a dog and a house, oh and a fiancée too. How will I fit work in in a few months?!

I see so many people entered the   

competition on my page to win the brand new STEM box set. I thought I could share some ideas on here too seeing as there was such an interest.

    Challenge Question: Can you build a paper airplane that will fly far through the air? Build one and measure how far you can make it go!
  2. . Building a Roller Coaster
    Challenge Question: What kind of roller coaster can you make with straws? Use a ping pong ball as your “car” to try it out when you are finished!
