STEMming the tide of war

What were Science and Technology subjects like a hundred years ago, around the time of the First World War? How did Science contribute to the war, and was the war the mother of invention in changing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths?  In our corner of Preston, how was the Harris Institute affected by the war, what were students learning, and what contribution did the institute and its students make?
In a fascinating session, find out more about the connections between science, technology and the First World War, and see some of the materials students were using at this time.
