He will be on hand to engage in some hands on science with year 10 students to test out the new facilities. The professor will also deliver a lecture on 'Exploring the universe through engineering and science' to the young people attending.

Joining in the Dudley Advance launch celebrations is a great opportunity for me to meet so many young people enjoying science related activities in this fantastic new training centre.

Science is so exciting, so fun events like this are a great way to get everybody involved and thinking about the career options science, technology, engineering and maths subjects can offer.

The launch has provided an excellent opportunity for these young minds to get involved and be inspired to become the next generation of scientists, star-gazers and skilled engineers of the future.
