STEM Experience Day

Last Thursday, Miss Lee and I took a minibus full of keen year 12 students to Liverpool University for a STEM experience day.  Students attended two sessions from a diverse range of topics within chemistry, computer science, maths and physics.  From considering the prospect of artificially Intelligent Lego and how to communicate during a Zombie apocalypse, to the inside of an environmental Time Machine and the idea that a Radioactive Cat has 18 Half Lives.  From sitting in a lecture theatre to working in a science laboratory and relaxing in a student meeting area, our students had a great taster of life on campus.  An enjoyable and informative day, which left our students with much to think about.
