Northumbria University, Ellison Place

http://nustem.uk/about/planning-your-visit/

NUSTEM’s home turf, Think Lab is a flexible space in Northumbria University’s City Campus. Part lab, part workshop, part ad-hoc group working space, part social space – we host many events here, and it looks different every time.

We can be a little tricky to find on your first visit. The easiest way is to come in via The Link on Northumberland Road, and follow the NUSTEM signs from there. Check the website link for a set of photos to guide you further.

Many organisations in the North East are keen to see an increase in the technology, physical science and engineering workforce, and a concomitant increase in the life choices of the people of the North East. This can only be achieved through a combination of approaches including staff retention, improved return-to-work rates, inward recruitment and by drawing more young people into the sector. There’s dynamic and innovative work in STEM engagement taking place in the North East, with companies and other organisations…

The FSE project is running in community centres across the North East and has enabled families to come together and support their young children's joy of reading alongside an exploration of the wonders of space. In each of two sessions, families shared read a story related to space and then complete science activities which compliment the books.…
