King’s Students Inspired by Malvern Festival of Innovation

On Tuesday (8th October) 30 of our Lower Fourth students visited the annual Malvern Festival of Innovation at the Three Counties Showground with teachers from Computing and Physics.

One aim of the festival is to showcase careers and opportunities within STEM subjects and where they might lead on to after students leave school. The students had an opportunity to visit the variety of exhibits that showcased some of the latest technology being used at many local companies like Mazak and Malvern Panalytical, and national agencies like Cyber Discovery, Institute of Physics and the Imagineering Foundation and even had a look inside a brand new Tesla Model 3.

They also attended a seminar about BitCoin Cryptocurrency, listened to a lecture about Physics, Music and Maths, watched a 360-degree immersive video about building the James Webb telescope and each had a go at a virtual cricket session from BatFast. A very busy morning but a thoroughly enjoyable one too.
