School participates in STEM event for local schoolchildren
20 September 2016
On Wednesday 14th September, the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences participated in the STEM Live! Event, where over 200 local Year 8 students explored the practicalities of humans living on Mars.
The School contributed a workshop where students explored why Mars looks the way it does. In the workshop, students were encouraged to identify the best landing spots on the planet by looking at the types of rock on Mars and understanding the formation of impact craters.
