Snakes, spiders and exotic bugs once again, made their way to Winstanley College for the annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Day.
’Safari Phil’ brought the weird and wonderful beings along and spoke to fascinated science students about their physiology and natural habitats. The students were also given the chance to handle the creatures and study their various forms.
Many other guests also visited the college to promote STEM subjects and career pathways including staff from, BAE Systems, Sellafield, Balfour Beary and the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
Budding scientists from Shevington High School were also invited to join in the fun.
Phil Horner, college STEM coordinator said: ‘The students have had a really informative day and many have commented that it has given them ideas for future career paths. We are very grateful to all the companies who have come along and showcased the opportunities on offer. Thanks also to Shevington High School for showing their support for the day’
