The Changing Lives through STEM Research programme is funded by Scottish Universities Insight Institute and organised by teams at the Universities of Strathclyde, St Andrews, Edinburgh and Dundee. The aim of the programme is to explore how university researchers can help engage early years children with exciting, cutting-edge and inspiring science, engineering, maths and technology.

The first of a series of interactive workshops will take place at the University of Strathclyde. Organisers aim is to bring university researchers and public engagers together with people working in the education, charity and government sectors, to build new partnerships that can help enhance the wider public’s engagement with the latest science and engineering research. This first workshop is focussed on the theme of early years education: how do we bring the latest science and engineering into pre-school and primary-level education, and help inspire children, parents and teachers from the earliest stages of the learning journey.

If you would like to attend, please register your free ticket by following the link to book on Eventbrite (lunch will be provided).

Organisers will be holding more workshops on themes such as international development of STEM engagement, and using STEM engagement to address child poverty and inequality, in early 2017.
