'The Roadshow was devised in response to the Government's acknowledgement that there is already a shortfall of ‘home grown’ scientists and engineers to meet the needs of the country and by capturing the interest of young people aged 10 – 13, we can hopefully increase the numbers that take STEM subjects and ultimately increase the pool of talent in years to come.
Our new show for 2018 is entitled “It’s a Numbers Game.”
Throughout the show students will be introduced to a series of fun and fascinating ways in which Maths is used in everyday life, including examples of the practical application of mathematical techniques within BAE Systems, the RAF and the Royal Navy.
The presentation includes the most up to date technologies to demonstrate the importance of Maths in the future of Engineering – our amazing robot MIA is back this year to show off her mathematical genius and we explore developments in facial recognition technology. Students are invited to participate in some of the demonstrations and problem-solving games as we aim to demystify the subject and help embed learning that they will encounter in school.
