Scientists from the annual Big Bang Fair, which promotes science, technology and math (STEM) subjects, worked with St Helen's Primary School in Canning town to create dishes such as geometric fish and chips, cauliflower cogs and a pie in the shape of the mathematical constant of 'Pi' as part of the project.

The meals, served during school lunchtime, followed a survey by the Big Bang Fair that found 71 percent of 11-16-year-olds think it is crucial to have access to this kind of technology at school not just in science labs and classrooms, but the school gym, playground and even the canteen, with 40 percent believing it will enable them to learn something while they eat.
