First I had to get up at 5am in the morning and catch a taxi so we could get the 6:20 train. It took two hours. We finally pulled up in Euston station and got the underground train to Tower Hill, where Tobacco Dock is located.
As I walked through the doors, I knew this would be a great experience as I could see the excitement on people’s faces for the day ahead. 😬 😮 😃
First, me and my mum went into the interactive zone and had a look around. Soon after that, it was time to go into the conference hall and listen to the opening remarks and an ASTRONAUT! She had gone up into space and it was cool to listen to how she did it. Then it was time for the 3d printing workshop hosted by ‘Fab lab London’ and I learnt how to design for a 3d printer.
After that amazing workshop, it was a ½ hour break where you could have a snack. After that, there was another talk, by Hussain Manawer who won a poetry competition and gets to go to space next year! Then, it was the ‘hacking the body and mind’ talks from some super cool people. First there was the memory scientist, then a teenage neuroscientist and finally a bionic arm builder. It was amazing to listen to all these people talk about their subjects especially as they were close to my age.
The bionic arm builder was the best in my opinion as it included a speaker who was eleven. After that, we made our way to the speaking area, to listen to a speaker from the Malala school project in Syria. After her inspiring speech, we listened to the ‘creators and innovators’ which was amazing as it was a VR and AR pioneer, a person who worked in films and Heston Blumenthal! All their speeches were very interesting.
When the conference finished, we went and had a look around London. I had had a fantastic day and I hope I can go back again!
Thank you so much Osper for this wonderful experience!
