Moving On Tyne & Wear

STEM Innovation Project (North Tyneside)

This project was one of Moving On Tyne & Wear’s original Innovation Projects. It has now come to a natural end. 


About the project

We helped North Tyneside participants to look at their skills and interests in STEM. Based on that, we brokered volunteering opportunities in the community which match their needs.

Our volunteering opportunities were designed to provide opportunities to learn more about STEM subjects. We provided taster days in areas such as shoreside nature surveys and in gardening to explore different avenues.

We also hosted eight-week programmes of training workshops, aimed at helping people find out about the varied careers that use STEM skills. From making lava or bath bombs to discovering forensics and DNA, astronomy, plant and body x-rays, and sound technology—there was something for everyone!
