Hugh Baird College recently hosted an event that ignited the passion for careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) fields among hundreds of learners from across the Liverpool City Region.

The STEAM Expo 2024 at Hugh Baird College, held on March 27, embraced the theme of ‘Ignite, Innovate, Inspire,’ drawing over 600 school pupils for a day filled with captivating events and activities aimed at showcasing the exciting possibilities within STEAM disciplines.

Professor Coskun Kocabas from the University of Manchester set the stage with a keynote speech that offered insights into the future of 2D device materials. His presentation not only provided a glimpse into groundbreaking research findings but also inspired the audience with ideas that pushed the boundaries of innovation.

One of the highlights of the expo was the STEAM-inspired fashion show, where innovative designs crafted by Hugh Baird College students demonstrated the creative potential of integrating STEAM principles into fashion.

There were also interactive displays from employers and education providers, including Matalan, Keele University, NHS, and more, provided attendees with a firsthand look at the diverse opportunities available in STEAM-related fields.

STEAMatopia 2024, a part of the broader STEAM Expo, invited primary school-aged pupils to engage in activities designed to spark curiosity and imagination.
