Members of the Limehurst science club are powering ahead with their ‘Science World Challenge’. They will need to pool all of their creative, business and management skills as the big event draws closer with only nine weeks left to prepare their unique product display stand for Science World 2012.
The pupils aged 12 – 13 will stand alongside 80 world-class exhibitors at the event which will be held at Wembley Stadium on the 19 April.
Last week’s meeting saw key members of the Fisher Scientific UK Marketing Team host a hands-on workshop to guide the students in marketing their product at the event. This included logo design, copy writing, promotion and product knowledge – skills that any discerning lab-supplier will need to have in the bag!
Matthew Chamberlain, science teacher at Limehurst School and host of the science club, commented “The pupils seemed to respond really well to the practical help from the Fisher Scientific team and it’s certainly giving them a flavor of what goes on in the real world of science”.
“It’s great to see the pupils engaged and really thinking about how they can make an impact with their product at Science World this year. We’re all excited to see the results of their hard work at the big event “said Emily Quinton, marketing operations manager at Fisher Scientific.
