Twelve Science and Psychology students from Coulsdon College had the chance to attend the New Scientist LIVE conference at ExCel London on Thursday 28 September.
With hands-on interactive displays of the very latest innovations in scientific technologies and a host of fascinating talks ranging from ‘50 Years of Space Exploration’ with Tim Peake, Helen Sharman and Al Worden to ‘Down the Rabbit Hole: A Conversation with Heston Blumenthal’, the exhibition has been described as “the world’s most exciting festival of ideas.”
The students took full advantage of all that was on offer, playing with the range of gadgets on display and participating in lectures and workshops on the human body, earth, cosmos and technology.
Katherine Worrell, who accompanied the trip, hailed it as a great success, saying, “It was a fantastic opportunity for our Science and Psychology students to be able to see some of the very latest scientific developments. It was also a great place to be inspired and gather ideas and data for those who are undertaking EPQ projects.”
