To round off a hectic week for the Skate Project we took a display & some budding skaters to the BIG BANG SOUTH WEST young engineers & scientists fair held at Exeter University.
More than 2000 people visited the fair yesterday (Thursday 28 June 2012) to marvel at the fascinating science, technology, engineering and maths on display at The University’s Streatham campus.
Over 50 local and national organisations helped make the event a success, letting students know where studying science, engineering, technology and maths could take them as well as telling them about the latest developments or technology in their field.
More than 200 students also demonstrated the projects they entered for competitions including the National Science & Engineering Competition and the CREST Awards.
Interest in the skate project was high from Students & Teachers alike from all over the South West. Compliments were also paid towards the project and it’s achievements.
Our students were also treated to an amazing array of scientific explosions and experiments in the Northcott Theatre by a team of Sussex University Scientists led by showman ‘Dr Hal’. We even got to see ‘Quantum Levitation’ in the flesh a real, scientific contender to build actual ‘Hover Boards’ in the future. Amazing stuff indeed!
The day finished with a glitzy award ceremony in the Northcott Theatre where judges revealed their top choices and handed out over 30 prizes to students who will go on to the National finals next year in London.
