Stephen McPartland, MP for Stevenage, went along to the science festival for families organised by Da Vinci Studio School at the Stevenage campus of North Hertfordshire College. Together with Donna Lodge, principal designate of the Da Vinci Studio School, Stephen met with Titan the Robot, star of the show.
Stephen said "it was fantastic to see TItan perform and he was huge hit with children and adults. I was very proud of how many people turned up to support the new DaVinci Studio School, which will open in September. The atmosphere was electric and everyone was excited. I am delighted we persuaded the government to allow Stevenage to be the pilot for the DaVinci Studio School at North Hertfordshire College".
Donna said: “The festival has proved a huge a success in so many ways; we managed to introduce many local families to the fun side of science and engineering and put the Da Vinci Studio School well and truly on the map. It was amazing to see people of all ages thoroughly enjoying themselves. This September the school opens to its first 100 students, we wanted to show the town what amazing fun you can have while learning.”
