About this day
In three incredible sessions we will bring the excitement of STEM subjects to audiences using real world applications and future directions. We know that getting the fundamentals right at KS3 is key to later success and we want students to be engaged and curious from an early age. Join us for a programme of inspiration, exploration and experimentation!
Programme & speakers
Dangerous Equations Marty Jopson, Science presenter
Join Marty Jopson as he places himself in grave personal danger for your entertainment. Will his steely nerve and a set of equations be enough to keep him from harm?

Marty has a PhD in plant biology, is a science TV presenter, live show performer, writer, strange prop builder and all round Science Bloke.
Caught on camera: wildlife in the spotlight Emily Madsen, Conservation Biologist
How do we count wildlife? If we want to know how a species is adapting to our changing world then one of the first things we need to know is how many there are. Learn about the key tools and techniques conservation biologists use to study wildlife of all shapes and sizes.
About Emily Madsen
Often found with a camera in hand bouncing around in a Land Rover, Emily is a Conservation Biologist who is happier sleeping in a tent than four walls.
How to Freeze a Human Alex Baker, University of Warwick
In every cell in every tissue and every organ of your body, millions and millions of reactions are being carried out to keep you alive. The key ingredient in all these reactions is heat, so what happens if we drop the temperature? Could we cryogenically preserve organs and blood? Alex will explore the science and cutting-edge research behind cryogenics and consider how to freeze a human.
