The show had over 150 exhibits and features: including incredible creatures. the marvellous moon, the future of farming and the operating theatre of the future. Talks were held throughout the day. There were the opportunities to sit in the cockpit of a fighter jet, fly a VR glider and ride a VR roller coaster, see a combine harvester, try out eco glitter and taste chocolate! There was the opportunity to talk with professionals working in science and hear about the different pathways into a STEM career. Some visitors were fortunate enough to see Major Tim Peake walking around the show.
