Year 9 Visit STEM Open Day

Ten year 9 pupils attended the University of Liverpool STEM Open Day in February. They enjoyed three practical sessions during the day. They looked at ways of making oil and water emulsions allowing them to make their own hand creams. Then they used spectroscopy to identify the food colourings present in sweets. Finally they made artificial femurs to fit into hip joints. Our budding scientists really appreciated the interaction of science in real life situations.
