Parents, pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the Oundle and Imperial College STEM Roadshow held in the Hargreaves Hall on Friday evening.

Mr Scott Marley, a lecturer in Astro Physics at Imperial College, captivated our S. Anselm’s audience with fascinating facts about space, in particular, transport to and from planets in our galaxy.  Mini rockets, sensational displays of the physics behind gravity, and even the power of infrared light were just some of the topics covered in the outstanding range of experiments.  Mr Marley finished his presentation with a glimpse of the ongoing space race between Bezos, Branson and Musk; for a mere £250,000 each, people will be able to take a trip into space!

S. Anselm’s pupils impressed our visitors with their enthusiasm and ability to answer questions with such accuracy.
