SCHOOLCHILDREN will be learning about the application of maths in the real world as the Portsmouth leg of the 2013 Schools Roadshow Tour is launched.
The annual roadshow, run by engineering firm BAE Systems and the Royal Air Force, gives students the chance to enjoy a live and engaging theatre performance about engineering and then get hands on in a series of interactive workshops.
The events are designed to inspire young people about Stem subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths.
After spending a week in Portsmouth the Roadshow will be moving on to 250 other schools in the UK to engage more than 25,000 young people.
Andrew Davies, managing director at BAE Systems Maritime said: ‘It is absolutely essential to the future of the country that we encourage young people to engage with these subjects as they will be the engineers of the future.
The roadshow will take place on Monday, June 24, and Tuesday, June 25.
