Young people with an interest in science and technology can take part in hands-on experiments and learn about everything from animals to surgery at Wiltshire College’s STEM expo on Wednesday.

Held at the college campuses in Trowbridge and Salisbury, the expo is intended to promote careers in science and engineering, and includes fun activities like Robotic Arm Jenga, Think Maths, and a STEM ‘virus outbreak’ for visitors to cure.

There will be talks on pharmaceuticals and electronics design, a live video conference with an expert heart surgeon from Spain, a tank driving simulator, and a chance to look over a racing car from Castle Coombe.

The events run from 9.10am-4pm on Wednesday (November 7).
