Getting STEAMed up about food science!

In June, Chilled Education enjoyed its latest face-to-face event at the University of Northampton’s STEAM event. CFA’s Charlotte Patrick represented the CEd team and met with students and teachers to demonstrate the inspiring resources.

Organisers counted more than 2,500 school students and teaching and schools’ staff from more than 45 schools and colleges visiting the event, which is the biggest county ‘careers expo’ for 10 to 18 year olds.



Charlotte says: “We were delighted with the response from everyone who visited our stand. We demonstrated gas pressure, challenged young minds with MicroTrumps and, of course, tested hand washing skills with the Glo Germ kits. And seeing our banner used in the official photos from the event reinforced the importance of food science the STEAM portfolio.”

And the organisers, summing up the day, said: “The whole point of STEAM Northants is to inspire young people, opening their eyes about the possibilities in Northants and beyond and to let them explore and ‘have a go’ at some of the vast array of careers and professional areas available to them. To see them have ‘lightbulb moments’ and hear their whoops of delight just demonstrates what a success the event has been.” CEd’s inspiring resources can be found on its Shopify website
