For the uninitiated, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths or perhaps a better description would be ‘How the World Works’. You don’t need a technical background or a love of equations to enjoy the meetings – just an interest in ‘stuff’. And the ‘stuff’ in question can cover Black Holes to Biology, Vaccines to Vehicles or Nikola Tesla to Stephen Hawking.
This is a brand new group, so it will be for the participants to shape how it progresses. The initial concept has two strands – first, speakers, either external or from among the members and, second, visits.
The group’s subject matter could be anything that loosely fits into STEM – all ideas are welcome.
The first meeting will be on Wednesday 15th November at 10am in the Withnell Fold Social Centre when a presentation will be given titled ‘SO, YOU THINK IT’S SAFE TO FLY?’.
