One of the world’s leading particle physicists, Professor Brian Cox, resident Blue Peter science expert, Steve Mould, and the Eden Project have helped to bring science alive to 400 school students from across the UK at Science Live!
School trip organiser Adaptable Travel’s latest innovative educational event – Science Live! was held in the IMAX cinema at the Science Museum in London. Students aged between 14 – 17 years old attended the event which took place in connection with the British Science Association’s National Science and Engineering Week.
As well as live demonstrations and talks by the speakers, the event included an exclusive 3D screening at the IMAX cinema about the Hubble telescope and a trip to the Natural History Museum.
Professor Brian Cox, star of the BBCs Wonders of Our Universe, was on hand to meet students, answer questions and sign autographs from his hoard of excitable fans.
Ian Webb, managing director at Adaptable Travel, said:
“We pride ourselves on creating new and exciting ways to bring subjects such as science to life. It was really inspiring to listen to all of the presenters talk to the students and the event helped to show them exciting ways that science is being applied by using real-world examples.”
Steve Mould, an Oxford educated scientist who hosted the event, said:
"The audience were really enthusiastic. It was great to see them getting excited about a subject I love. I got the chance to do some of my favourite experiments and they had loads of questions for me at the end.
“That's what's great about events like Science Live! It's a chance to show people just how awesome science is."
