Come along and discover STEM in Alnwick



Calling all science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) enthusiasts!

Children aged 9 to 13 can have a brilliant day at the Alnwick Adult Learning Centre this autumn half-term week, finding out more about these fascinating subjects.

A full-day event on Wednesday 30 October will include three workshops run by industry experts in all things digital and STEM. 

Use your engineering skills to build a stretcher and explore technology through practical work with robots.

Cllr Nick Oliver, cabinet member for corporate services at Northumberland County Council said: “STEM is high on the agenda for all educational establishments and workplaces.

“As a council, we wish to promote them by engaging with local schools, children and businesses to increase the opportunities available in our county and showcase the exciting and varied career opportunities that the STEM subjects can open up for our young people.”

The event will run from 9.45 am until 3 pm on Wednesday 30 October. Places are £7 per child, plus VAT and booking fee. All children must be supervised by a parent or guardian and each adult should book a ticket, although adult tickets are free. Lunch is provided.

Book your tickets before 1 pm on Monday 28 October via Eventbrite.
