Details

A new Community STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) Club is being launched at the Old Library on September 16th and will take place every Thursday between 3.30 and 6pm during term-time. The sessions are free of charge and can be joined on a drop-in basis with no prior booking required. The planned activities are mostly suited for children aged 8 and older; younger children are welcome to join, though may need a bit of extra support from a parent or carer.

The activities will vary from session to session and include: STEM themed craft, Thymio robots, Lego MINDSTORMS and the Bristol Version of Minecraft. Children will also get the opportunity to get involved in the citizen science project WeCount, allowing them to monitor and analyse traffic data for Muller Rd, and use the information to help devise informed solutions to challenges around mobility and pollution.

The club is co-developed by Old Library volunteers and the DETI Inspire Team at UWE. It receives further support from the STEM Ambassador Hub for the West of England.

The sessions are run by community volunteers, STEM Ambassadors and UWE students. Please note that the club is not intended to provide childcare, so children should be suitably supervised (the café will be open and serve tea, coffee, cake and snacks).

Starts 16th September.

Every Thursday during term time.

3.30 – 6.00pm

Children ages 8+

Please get in touch with hello@theoldlibrary.org should you have any questions.
