  • Innovative events that will demonstrate pathways through science careers
  • Events including positive role models from a variety of backgrounds
  • High profile speakers from the world of science, engineering and technology
  • Activities that will provide teachers wth resources to use to follow up with students

  • Activities that will allow teachers to follow up in the classroom   
  • Innovative shows that enrich and enhance the curriculum
