Aliens

Year 8 Students from Cantell Computing and Maths College took part in a STEMNet project at the School of Physics and Astronomy entitled- "Communicating with Aliens", with the help of Astronomer Sadie Jones (on the right).

Professor Malcolm Coe - also gave students a talk about how far away the nearest Aliens might be. The students researched types and methods of communication with the help of SETI.

Sadie awarded the students a prize of sending a message into Space. The students invited Aliens to earth to have a cup of tea.

Students attended a Q&A session with the Astronomer Patrick Moore as part of the project and took part in the University's Science and Engineering Family Day on the 7 March, which won an award for best Outreach Event.
