UlverSTEM 2019

Today we spent a couple of hours in the Coronation Hall at a science event for young people. It was the second year that the event has been run and the hall was packed with youngsters trying their hands at various experiments and activities with a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics theme.

Megan and William started our visit by learning to fly a drone under the tuition of two Engineers from Siemens. We then saw demos for Virtual and Augmented Reality applications followed by a working model submarine from BAE Systems.

We got to pilot a stunt plane in a flight simulator and blow rainbow snake bubbles in a chemistry experiment.

Andrew Jenkins

For us, however, the star of the show was Andrew Jenkins a young particle physicist from Lancaster University who, ably assisted by Megan, used card tricks to illustrate probability theory to a growing crowd of amazed youngsters. He certainly kept Megan and William entertained and engaged. His use of magic ball and cup trick to describe Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle was only surpassed by his apparent ability to pass a whole lemon through a solid table thereby proving that Quantum tunnelling is indeed possible!

  1. What an innovative and exciting initiative to enthuse children about science and technology. I wonder, do they organise events for grannies?! 🤔 xx
