Over 6200 pupils from 90 schools took part in four fun filled days that included action packed shows, engaging workshops and free interactive zones. Science, technology engineering and mathematics brought to life in front of their eyes.
The 2016 programme offered 16 exciting interactive shows exploring everything from the depths of our brains, the science of chocolate to uncovering the secret world of superheroes. Hands-on workshops gave pupils the opportunity to make extreme cells, explore life on Mars, investigate the underwater world, dance through forces as well as designing wind turbines and flying a plane to name just a few highlights.
