Kids have chance to play with science at National Aquarium
For two days, kids and families have a chance to sample a smorgasbord of interactive activities showcasing the latest science and technology research from Plymouth University, all free of charge.
The event, called STEM Fest Family Weekend, is part of the Plymouth Marine City Festival and includes displays, robots and trying your hand at riding a segway.
One of the children visiting the event was Jemma Keats, who was controlling the tumbling robot brought along by Plymouth University's robot football lab.
"I like science and the robot is fun. The best thing here has been driving around on the bike (segway, ed.)," she said.

On hand to guide the kids through the various interactive activities were students from Plymouth University. Two of them were Rowena Butterworth and Carlton Broley.
"It has been interesting showing the kids how to do the various tasks and explaining the science behind it to them," they said..
STEM Fest Family Weekend runs through Saturday and Sunday 15 and 16 September, 10 to 6 each day at the National Marine Aquarium Plaza.
