BRIDGE building, 3D printing, food tasting and forensics were just some of the activities families enjoyed at Nailsea School’s interactive science event.
The school put on its first STEM evening – science, technology, engineering and maths – and more than 250 people turned up to try out different experiments and games. Fashion fans made outfits from plastic bags, lasers were used to make personalised key rings and families were also able to make fused glass tiles.
GE Oil and Gas, Oxford Instruments, Bath Spa University, crime scene investigators from Avon and Somerset Constabulary, @Bristol and Gordano Valley Archers were among the businesses who offered visitors some hands-on experience in their fields.
Brian Powell, head of technology and enterprise, said: “As always, learning through fun and excitement is far more stimulating and memorable, and was the key of this STEM evening.
“It was great to see parents and grandparents getting to grips with the challenges and having fun alongside their children.”
