Free STEM activities over October half term for 8 to 13 years

We have received information from the Local Authority regarding an exciting event taking place over half term which might be of interest to you.

Autumn STEM Challenge has been created by Worcestershire County Council and partners to Introduce and Inspire children aged 8-13 years in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

There will be a week of free activities and workshops in libraries across the county (Bromsgrove, Droitwich, Evesham and Redditch), alongside a week long drop in pop up science exhibition at Warndon Library in The Fairfield Centre, Worcester, 01905 822722. It’s free for the whole family! No need to book, just drop into any session.

Warndon library's pop up science exhibition has hands on experiments for children and their families to try – each day there will be a different activity or experiment to try, for example:

Monday - Slime - Throughout the day there will be the opportunity to use a 100% guaranteed recipe.

Tuesday - Rockets - If the weather is in our favour we will be able to make and launch paper rockets, how far can we get them to go?

Wednesday - LEGO - Put your programming skills to the test using LEGO Mindstorms Robotics.

Thursday - Human Body - Come and investigate how some parts of the human body work.

Friday - Rollercoasters - Can you make a roller coaster for a table tennis ball?
