Wirral EdTech Company, Hi-Impact, Introduces STEM Live for Primary School Students

Hi-Impact, the Wirral-based EdTech company, is proud to announce the launch of STEM Live, a series of interactive online lessons for primary school students, supported by Liverpool City Region’s High Growth Innovation Fund (HGIF). HGIF is part of the LCR High Growth Programme that is part funded by ERDF and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and delivered by Growth Platform – Liverpool City Region Growth Company.

The first lessons, ‘Meet the Astronauts’, have already received an incredible response with over 105,000 pupils from across the UK and beyond participating. These exciting lessons, taking place on February 2nd and 3rd at SaxaVord Spaceport, located on Britain’s most northerly island in the Shetlands, offer students a once-in-a-lifetime chance to interact live with Helen Sharman, Britain’s first astronaut. During the event, students will have the opportunity to learn about space and the journey to become an astronaut and ask questions directly to Helen.

Helen Sharman said “I am really looking forward to sharing my experiences, live, and talking to thousands of young people with enquiring minds!”

Hi-Impact CEO, Alan Thompson, said, “We are thrilled with the success of ‘Meet the Astronauts’ and look forward to providing many more unique STEM Live opportunities throughout the year and beyond. This program provides children with an inspiring learning experience, accessible to all primary schools.”

Don’t miss out on these exciting opportunities for your students.
