Do you know your quarks from your Higg’s boson? Does geology leave you between a rock and hard place? Well this Saturday prepare to get experimental with the Bluecoat STEM Festival!
There’ll be shows from Mad Science and The Juggling Scientist for you to watch and learn from plus displays of some of the most cutting edge tech in the city. See amazing robots and experience the world like you’ve never seen it before through a Virtual Reality headset! Race radio controlled cars and planes, build LEGO robots and take part in some wacky workshops featuring making slime (yuck!) and rocket building.
There’ll be STEM Ambassadors on hand to talk to you about how to make your STEM goals a reality and what things you’ll need to do get that dream STEM job. plus food and stalls for much needed refreshment!
If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get to handle truly unique space rocks – brought back by astronauts! This will be one out of this world experience. The event is free and aimed at students in years 5-6, and not just those going to Bluecoat next year or the year after. For more information click here.
