YOUTH UNIVERSITY – Science, Maths and Technology


120 students and their families attended the second weekend of the Newquay Tretherras Youth University Programme.

The young learners form all Newquay primary schools, together with parents, explored the Newquay Tretherras curriculum of Science, Maths and Technology.

Industrious young learners got hands on experiences of CAD/CAM design and made mobile phone holders in DT, whilst scrumptious cakes were made in Food Technology.

Inquisitive budding scientists designed and tested ‘eggs-traordinary’ egg parachutes as well as solving murder mysteries with the use of forensic science.

Problem-solving Maths students got to the bottom of logic puzzles and decoded the Maths trail around the school.

Tristan White co-ordinator of the Youth University said, “The Newquay Tretherras Youth University Programme sees great participation form young Newquay learners and their parents. It’s a fantastic Saturday morning full of exciting activities that really gives a good feel about the Tretherras curriculum.”

The final Youth University day is this Saturday 4th of October. Pupils and their parents will be able to take part in the Creative Arts programme and enjoy Music, Art and Dance activities.
