Zap, Crackle and Pop!
Join Dr Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist as he takes a sparky journey through the story of electricity. Do you know the difference between current and voltage? With the aid of the audience, Marty will explain. From the Ancient Greeks, through Faraday’s genius, this show aims to put the awesome back into electricity. With a one million volt spark and the crack of a whip, you may think we have electricity tamed, but are you sure? A show chock full of demonstrations: the astonishing floating orb, a light bulb made from a pencil lead and a plucked chicken. There will be at least one explosion.
Take a journey from everyday life, down into the realm of microscopical wonders with Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist. The adventure begins with things you can almost see but soon you will find yourself in a world totally invisible to the unaided eye. Marty will take you from the very beginnings of microscopy, through hugely magnified insects, bacteria and plants to the most up to date fluorescent techniques demonstrated live on the stage. A show not just full of stunning images, but interactive demonstrations and samples harvested from the audience. You have been warned! This show is supported by Zeiss, global leaders in the manufacture of microscopes.

S’Cool LAB at CERN
S’Cool LAB is a Physics Education and Education-Research facility at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland.
We offer high school students and their teachers the chance to take part in hands-on & minds-on particle physics experiment sessions on-site at CERN. Participating in S’Cool LAB activities, students can make discoveries independently, learn to work scientifically and apply their knowledge in a new setting. Students also have the chance to engage directly with members of CERN’s scientific community.
Due to the pandemic, all on-site activities are on stand-by and we switched to online activities, like the STEMtastic21 science shows.
Why we, as a university, are participating in STEMtastic21?
It is very exciting for us to participate in STEMtastic21, delivering three live lectures on chemistry subjects. Chemistry is everywhere and underpins many of the scientific discoveries that have allowed our society to evolve, adapt and advance. As a university, it is important for us to maximise our visibility, so that prospective students are aware of who we are and what we offer. But, more importantly, this is a great opportunity for us to talk about STEM, and particularly chemistry, to a broad audience, and to help spread appreciation of the advantages that STEM research brings to society, and its importance for our future.
STEM at UEA
The Faculty of Science at UEA is one of the largest faculties in the University and is part of the Norwich Research Park, one of Europe’s largest concentrations of researchers in the life sciences.

We have also been developing Engineering for some years, and a new School of Engineering will launch later this year. Furthermore, we offer Natural Sciences and have recently re-introduced degree programmes in Physics.
