Visitors experienced six themed areas, each housing a range of mechanical and multimedia interactive challenges, where children can compete, design, build or play. The exhibit is geared towards schoolchildren, but people of all ages and maths ability levels can enjoy.
“Students were be able to engage in nearly 40 unique experiences that explore the practical applications of maths in the worlds of design, engineering, technology and science, said Rose-Parfitt. “This could include video games, sports, robotics, fashion or music, and hopefully inspire students to pursue STEM careers.”
MathsAlive! builds on Raytheon UK’s broader commitment to spark student interest in STEM, which includes the Raytheon Quadcopter Challenge, now in its sixth year.
“We have a rich STEM education pipeline, from schools outreach to the Raytheon Technologies Global Cyber Academy, because we want to help nurture the next generation of engineers and scientists,” said Raytheon UK’s STEM Lead Sophie Wilson.
Entry to the exhibition has now closed.
