What is STEAM? with FACT and University of Liverpool

Fri 24 Nov / 10am - 12pm / FACT / Free, booking via Eventbrite


Join us for a sharing event with scientists and artists to inspire and discuss a STEAM approach in enabling young people to access and participate in physics research and art practice.

This event is part of Interaction Point, a new project between the Department of Physics at University of Liverpool and FACT in collaboration with Holy Cross Primary School, King’s Leadership Academy and The Studio School. The challenging subjects of art and science will be brought together to offer young people the opportunity to explore physics and create their own YouTube channel as a way to build their own audience and disseminate their learning through peers.

This programme is developed in the context of both The Tale of Two Tunnels, a project by the Department of Physics at the University of Liverpool and Broken Symmetries, an exhibition that shows the outcomes of the three year collaboration between Arts at CERN and FACT.
