Think Week – a STEM summer camp

Come and join us at our fourth Think Week!

This summer we’ll be running our not quite world famous Think Week summer school, at Northumbria University. Five days of science and exploration from Monday 1st to Friday 5th August 2016.

Every day we’ll be exploring new areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – if you’d like to find out what we did last year, take a look here. You can also take a look at the gallery below to see what previous Think Weekers have got up to!

Here’s a list of just some of the things we’ll get up to:

  • Computer programming with Arduino robots
  • 3d printing and 3d design with our own 3d printers!
  • Light paint (yes! painting with light)
  • Bubble science (giant bubble science)
  • Field study with microscopes in Exhibition park
  • Using our Maker skills to build marble runs
  • Piloting Spheros around our maze
  • Exploring optics with camera obscura and periscopes
  • Engineering challenges
  • Scientific experiments in our Think Lab
  • Meeting new people and making new friends

On the Thursday, we’ll be visiting the Centre for Life and taking a look at the new Animal Inside Out exhibition (entry to the Centre for Life is included in the cost of Think Week).
