50 Year 8 students from Liskeard School and Community College enjoyed a showcase of innovative science and technology projects that are currently attracting the attention of the University of Plymouth and other local businesses.

Students explored the 30 stalls at the exhibition, held at the University of Plymouth, which included activities as diverse as making your own seaweed jelly, using facial reconstruction software, exploring virtual reality worlds, riding segways and much more. Students were able to get hands on with some of the technology, as well as pick the brains of the scientific minds responsible for the innovations.

Those in attendance were also able to attend a talk on the impact that humans and the climate have had on megafaunal (large animals) extinctions. Students were able to understand the real life impacts that we have on the planet, and how changing climate conditions and human interaction over millennia have caused the extinction of woolly mammoths, giant ground sloths and even cave bears and cave lions from northern Europe.

Science teacher Mr Andrew Davis, who attended the exhibition with the students, explained that it was “an invaluable experience for our students who are looking to find out more about studying STEM subjects at degree level and beyond, as well as helping to explore their potential career opportunities in those fields.”
