Thanks to all the participants for your enthusiasm during our Maths activity at the Lancaster University STEM Challenge yesterday, held to celebrate National Science and Engineering Week.

We tested the competing students' ability to use geometry to measure a number of features around the campus, including Bowland Tower and Lake Carter. The teams competed to produce the most accurate measurements and impressed the judging panel with the variety of techniques chosen.

Congratulations especially to Heysham High School but well done to everyone who took part.
