Our super STEM pals Ignite! have got free spaces on their Community Curiosity Lab summer programme, which starts next week on Tuesday 9th August running through until Saturday 13th August at Bulwell Academy. It promises to be a brilliant week!
Many people think that science is difficult and not for them; but everyone is curious about something and the kinds of questions that young people ask can help families learn together. The Community Curiosity Labs take place in local social and community centres, and show how science can be fun, exciting and a part of our everyday lives.
Young people will work with scientists and mentors to work on investigations that they are interested in, go on trips to the university and learn how to communicate their investigations.
Sessions are aimed at children aged 10-12 and will run from 12:30 until 16:00 on all days except on Wednesday which will be a whole day with a trip to the University of Nottingham in the morning and a normal session in the afternoon.
To sign up please e-mail Hasmita Chavda on Hasmita@ignitefutures.org.uk or call 0115 873 6249 and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
About Ignite! and the CCL
Working with Nottingham City Homes and scientists from the University of Nottingham, Ignite! successfully piloted the Community Curiosity Labs over the summer of 2015, in the Strelley neighbourhood. Young people and their families explored science questions, through a series of fun experiments. It had an immediate impact on the community and the events were positively received by all the young people who atended. The second iteration of the Labs builds on the learning and partnerships from the first. Funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the project will be supported by University of Nottingham, Nottingham City Homes, Bulwell Town Team and Bulwell Academy.
