Teenagers swap their classroom for a science lab [South Wales Echo (UK)]
(South Wales Echo (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HUNDREDS of teenagers got the chance to explore the brain and have fun in a science lab when they swapped their classrooms for a university campus.
About 400 sixth form students from St David's Catholic were given a taste of university life thanks to a partnership with Cardiff University.
A special conference was organised to inspire students about the impact science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) have on the world as well as giving them an insight into a wide variety of career opportunities.
The STEM conference, which took place this week, was open to all lower sixth form students studying maths, science, geography, and ICT at the college in Penylan, Cardiff. Hilary Griffiths, assistant principal at St David's College said: "The conference was a great success."
