Justin Madders MP sees stars


Justin Madders MP visited the National Schools Observatory based at John Moores University in Liverpool to see how astronomy interests and excites pupils to further their knowledge of science and mathematics.

The Liverpool Telescope, owned and operated by John Moores University is the world’s largest robotic and professional grade telescope used globally for world-leading research.

LJMU generously dedicates 10% of this unique telescope’s time for UK and Irish schools, giving the next generation of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) professionals an unequalled opportunity to engage with the global scientific community.

Justin said, “This is an amazing resource available to pupils of all ages and abilities. I found the entire visit fascinating and was really impressed with the whole package provided to aid both pupils and teachers to give a broad set of STEM skills and bring cutting-edge research into the classroom. I hope schools in Ellesmere Port & Neston take advantage of this free resource - it is a fantastic way to engage children and young people.”
