Future scientific and technological advancement is in the hands of our younger generations. This is why it is so important to encourage them to become excited about science and curious about the world around us.
With this in mind, University Academy Kidsgrove hosted the BAE Education Roadshow event this week, inviting participants aged 9 to 10 years, from nine local Primary Schools to take part. The BAE Systems Roadshow is designed, using fun interactive activities and drama, to inspire an early interest in science, technology and engineering.
The year 5 students thoroughly enjoyed the day and commented on how “Fantastic” and “Amazing” the show was! They especially loved generating “Electronic ZAP” music using an electronic keyboard, connected to a huge Tesla Coil ‘Lightning Machine’, shielded inside a Faraday Cage – quite spectacular and just a little bit scary!
Hopefully the event will help draw these bright young people into science, after all, they are the next generation of engineers, technologists and scientists who will shape our future!
