Year 7 STEM Visit to Bristol University
On Tuesday 7th February, the Year 7 Stem Club group went on a trip to Bristol University. There was first a talk from the organiser, Tom, about the university and what they provide there for all students across all years. Accompanied by student ambassadors, we then had a tour around the university crossing many areas with subjects known and unknown to us, such as Earth Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics and many more. It was really exciting to learn about the courses that you can take in Bristol University. Then we had lunch, but before that, we had to write one question to ask the student ambassadors or Tom.
After a long walk, Dr Helen Heath talked about ice cream, and the physics behind it. She explained about the chemists and the physicists view about ice cream. She showed the old way of freezing 200 years ago.
She made us ice cream with 2 pints of double cream, 2 cans of condensed milk and air, (liquid nitrogen). All of the students said that the ice cream was delicious - I personally thought it was one of the highlights of the day!
