National S.T.E.M/S.T.E.A.M Day is today (8th November). It is a great day that is to help inspire children into getting involved and interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths
Most people who know me will tell you that I love Science, Art, technology and sometimes even Maths (unless it in algebra). I have attended 2 colleges in my life, the first one I attended when I was 16 and I studied art with the dreams of becoming and fashion designer. Sadly that all got put on hold when T arrived a Shortly after I finished my first year.
Then when I was a little older I went back to college to redo my GCSE’s, it was then that I fell in love with Science and even went on to do Chemistry and Biology at A level.
So as you can guess I am an avid science lover and a little bit of a nerd myself, because of this I can really relate to the character from Project MC2 series that is shown on Netflix. The S.T.E.A.M based franchise is all bout four young girls who are teenage girls making their way through high school. As well as being a group of super secret spies and for an organisation NOV8
If you can’t tell already these girls aren’t your typical teenagers but are strong, smart and super sassy girls who help save the world on a regular basis, with ingenious experiments and awesome quick thinking and gadgets.
In the series, the girls have to invent a car that runs on just H2O (water) as part of a bet for a science competition. And because of this, they have brought on a fun remote control car that actually runs on water. Which I honestly think is amazing.
My girls thought so too. My boys were that interested as they don’t really get Project MC2, although they did enjoy playing with and trying to drive the remote control car. A is a massive MC2 fan and has been asking for all the different merchandise, so this car was right up her street. What I really enjoyed about it was the fact that we could have conversations as explained how the steam was made and how it helped power the car.
The car comes with a remote control and a fuel/water bottle to help you pour the water into the fuel tank. there is space to fit 2 Project MC2 dolls into the car so they can cruise around, once you connect the 2 wires into the engine, which uses AA batteries (which aren’t included).
All my kids have enjoyed playing with this car and it has helped us broach loads of fun and educational topics such as science, what makes cars run, fossil fuels and the environment. My girls think all cars should run on just water because it would be better for the environment.
I just hope that they will grow up to have the same love for science as I do but I know this car and the show has already set us on to that path.
