Teachers and year 8 students are invited to join researchers from Cardiff University and National Museum to explore the wonder of the science, engineering and maths (STEM) in an inspiring day of activity and curiosity! Students will take part in an immersive Mission to Mars drama to discover how different scientists and engineers work together to tackle real-life challenges. The event will introduce students to a wide range of science careers, giving them the opportunity to experience hands-on activities including programming robots, using thermal imaging camera, building emergency shelters and much more. Priority booking will be given to First Campus and Central South Consortium schools, but once they have been contacted, the event will be open to all. Note each school can bring 12 students and 3 teachers. Also, although this day is based around the STEM subjects, schools are encouraged to bring a group of students interested in a range of subjects. We are particularly keen to reach those who may need an extra push to persevere with maths and science. If you are a mixed school, we ask that your group is roughly 50:50 in gender split.
