STEM at The Helix

STEM at The Helix

All things Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths are coming to The Helix Park this May! 



STEM at The Helix is a one day event filled with interactive workshops, experiments and insights. Celebrating young minds and encouraging Scots, visitors and families alike to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths. The Helix will be transformed into a hub of discovery with a full programme of activity taking place across the park that's suitable for all ages.

We'll have a number of workshop style activities on the day that are drop in and will run throughout the afternoon, there is no need to book in advance. This will include the following:

- The Glasgow Science Centre's Engineering With Electronics: Drop in to try and become an Electronic Engineer with our super user-friendly Little Bits kits. Learn about circuits and work together to solve everyday electrical problems.

- Balfour Beatty: Explore a series of workshops themed around the construction of the new Forth Valley College's Falkirk campus. Aiming to give local students an opportunity to explore the build through cutting edge VR, allowing them to walk through the college before it has even been built. Balfour Beatty staff will be on hand to answer questions on careers in construction, and help young people make better informed decisions about their future.

- Dynamic Earth's Operation Earth: Take part in Operation Earth, an exciting new national programme exploring the amazing stories and science of the environment. Become a trainee environmental scientist and help us investigate our planet's land, air and oceans, and see if together we can find solutions to some of the challenges Earth is facing with exciting hands-on activities and demonstrations.

Plus many more! Young people can also expect to make slime, experiment with detergents, build with Lego, get up close and personal with nature and have a crack at coding!

So bring the whole family along to our free event and discover your #lightbulbmoment
