Join us in a club that will think creatively, while working in teams to design products and solve problems week by week to make our life on our island better (and perhaps eventually escape!)

Each session will start with setting the problem up followed by a brainstorm and design session. Ideas, Ideas, Ideas! We will then go on to build, test, evaluate and redesign models. As a group we will then discuss results, highlighting challenging areas, particularly effective designs and ways we could continue to develop our ideas. These problems will then be linked to real world problems where groups have used ‘everyday engineering’ to come up with solutions to challenging situations.

The club will run for four consecutive Saturdays starting on Saturday 22 April until Saturday 13 May. Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. For the whole term, membership is £45 and includes the cost of materials. This club is best suited to those aged 8-12 years.

To book now, email STEMclub@ASC.scot or phone 01224 640340. See below for more info on this exciting club!



For children aged 8-12 years this club offers a fun and inspiring way to engage with Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Each session includes hands-on activities themed around a topic. Sessions are facilitated by Aberdeen Science Centre staff. Academic and industry professionals periodically participate to share their knowledge and passion. Each session includes a snack.

It is recommended that parents / guardians drop members at the Centre and pick them up at the end of the session. Alternatively parents / guardians can wait in The Tramsheds Coffee (although this will close at 4pm), Shop or stay with children if preferred or required by the needs of the child.
