Brand new Schools’ Programme for 2019
Thursday 10 October will be New Scientist Live’s school focus day where teachers and students can take part in a programme tailored around the curriculum and dedicated to bringing science to life.
New Scientist Live offers a wonderful opportunity for students to extend their learning around the STEM subjects beyond the classroom and bring to life many of their areas of study. Our aim is to encourage the creativity and curiosity that children of all ages possess, and ensure students have a stimulating and rewarding visit to the show. New Scientist Live will ensure students understand that scientific developments taking place today have the power to change what it means to be human and the world that we live in.
With a tailored programme, students have the chance to see, learn and explore science outside the classroom.
Highlights include Sam in his 3D printed Iron Man life Jet Suite, LEGO universe workshop, managing exam stress and anxiety, measuring temperature with sound, the smelly world of insects, you are a mathematician, how to time travel in Einstein’s universe and so much more!
