Drop-in STEM club

On 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, the science centre hosts a standalone STEM workshop. This session is repeated the following Friday afternoon. You can drop in at any time. The extra activities are included in the standard admission. On your first visit, you will be given a passport. You will then earn a sticker for each of the activities that you complete. Once you have completed 8 separate challenges, you will earn either a CREST Star or CREST Superstar award. Find out what is coming up here.
