Youth University 2013 Science Maths and Technology

Inventors of Tomorrow Get Started at Tretherras

Over 120 local primary school students and their families attended the second day of the Newquay Tretherras Youth University programme.

This weekend’s programme focused on Science, Maths and Technology activities that both parents and students engaged in. Students got hands-on experiences of CAD/CAM Design and made mobile phone holders in DT, whilst scrumptious cakes were made in Food Technology. Budding scientists designed and tested best egg parachutes and also solved murder mysteries with the use of Forensic Science. Maths students took part in problem solving activities involving logic puzzles and followed the Maths trail around the school.

Tristan White Co-ordinator of the Youth University said, “It was great to see such enthusiastic teachers, pupils and their parents learning together. The facilities at Tetherras enabled the pupils to get experiences they would not normally get until they move on to secondary school”.

The final Youth University day is this Saturday the 5th of October. Pupils and their parents will be able to take part in Expressive Arts programme.
