Lancashire STEM symposium - Did You Know?
As part of a project funded by the National Higher Education STEM programme staff and students from Science and Technology at Lancaster ran six sessions at Blackpool Sixth Form college to promote the study of STEM.
The project received £10,000 as part of the collaboration fund which was run in collaboration with UCLan and the college.
The subjects on offer included Space Physics, Probability, Microbiology, Volcanology, Engineering and Physics research.
The sessions gave local students in and around the Blackpool and Fylde area the chance to speak to staff and students about Higher Education and future careers.
The project involved eleven schools and colleges with around 500 pupils and teachers taking part between October and December 2010.
In an article in the Blackpool Gazette Jon McLeod from Blackpool Sixth Form College said "We were delighted to see so many young scientists come to the college for the event. It's wonderful to be able to bring some cutting-edge science to Blackpool."
