We've been to the Imagineer Festival in Middlesbrough (http://www.mbro.ac.uk/home/index/STEM/imagineer.aspx) to show off our MIRAGE, pull some fingers and get kids excited about Science. Despite getting up at 5am we had a fabulous day and amazed nearly 200 kids and adults with our sensorimotor 'magic'. Lots of other great displays too - Aysha even had a close encounter with a Dalek...
Our fabulous student researchers setting up.
