Stevenage school’s first science festival proves ‘huge success’

HUNDREDS of people descended on a specialist school’s first science and engineering festival with Titan the Robot the main attraction.

The festival, organised by The Da Vinci Studio School, was held on Saturday with more than 600 visitors attending North Hertfordshire College’s Stevenage campus.

There was a chance to meet Bridget the lunar rover, build a spaghetti and marshmallow tower, and try bacon sandwich flavour edible balloons.

Donna Lodge, principal designate of the Da Vinci Studio School, said: “The festival has proved a huge a success in so many ways; we managed to introduce many local families to the fun side of science and engineering and put the Da Vinci Studio School well and truly on the map.

“It was amazing to see people of all ages thoroughly enjoying themselves. This September the school opens to its first 100 students, we wanted to show the town what amazing fun you can have while learning.”
