The highly-anticipated Infinity Science and Technology Festival, headlined by Professor Brian Cox, takes off at West Lakes Academy, Cumbria, next week. Alongside over 200 Cumbrian students, it will welcome a number of students from the St Paul’s Way Trust School, who hosted the annual Science Summer School held in London earlier this year.
The Science Summer School is the sister event to Infinity Science and Technology Festival and was attended by selected student ambassadors of Infinity Festival. The students from the St Paul’s Way Science Summer School already know what excitement is in store from their attendance at the London festival, and are making their way up North for more inspiring talks and workshops. Humayra Azad said: “I have never been to Cumbria and I’ve heard how picturesque it is, so I am super excited.” Eesa Yousaf added: “I love experiments and cannot wait to be taking part in all the fun workshops!”
On the day, students attending the festival will hear many interesting talks from our star-studded speaker line up including survival psychology – how you react if you found yourself in the middle of a disaster such as an earthquake, and sports and exercise biomechanics.
The pupils will also experience workshops including designing robots, learning about how the brain works using balloons, learning how to make paint and rolling their own pastel stick and watching a show with the greatest hits of science experiments!
Infinity Festival is set to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. The festival programme will also feature employment opportunities, training options and career paths. The evening reception, will be a showcase for pupils’ parents and guardians to experience the activities the pupils have participated in during the day to ‘get them on board’ supporting pupils to aspire to a future with no limits.
