On November 8th a group of Sixth Form science students visited the University of Liverpool to celebrate National STEM Day. The day involved a number of talks and activities to encourage students to study STEM subjects at university and show them what life at university is like.
Activities included a talk on veterinary sciences were students learned about the anatomy of dogs, cats and horses, and another on environmental sciences were students had to design their own sustainable city. These were followed by a tour of the University of Liverpool, visiting the various departments and a tour of student facilities, the students also got to experience various engineering projects that have been completed by current and past students.
This was a very enjoyable day and the students found it very informative and many now have a real interest in following courses within STEM at university.
