009 - Science on Tour with the STEM Response Team
Jun 22, 2020 Episode 9
Amanda Mathieson

This week we chat to the award-winning STEM Response Team (Dr Martin Khechara, Ellesse Janda, Phoebe Hinton-Sheley and Heather Angell) from the University of Wolverhampton about their mission to make science accessible to local communities and underprivileged parts of the country. With bitesize workshops, theatre shows and STEM-themed Christmas pantomimes, the team enhances the curriculum, bringing a sprinkle of comedy to science. We hear all about inspiring young people to embrace science through the transformative power of higher education. Plus one or two hilarious anecdotes!
