MerseySTEM has celebrated the opening of its new STEM Studio by lighting up LightNight Festival with its Robotics Challenge.
The arts & culture festival, held last week in Liverpool, included more than 100 free events such as exhibitions, talks, performances and hands-on activities.
MerseySTEM joined the annual celebration by hosting its own Robotics Challenge for the public. Family festival goers battled it out, navigated the maze, controlled the bots blindfolded and raced like professionals!
Held in its new city centre office within the Baltic Triangle, the STEM Studio is the organisation’s second office, alongside its headquarters at Deyes High School.
Based within Baltic Creative, a creative space established in 2009 to cater for the city’s thriving creative and digital sector, MerseySTEM say it is ‘the perfect setting’ as it continues to expand and plan even bigger and better events.
The office is also a short distance away from the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, which is the new home for The Big Bang North West.
MerseySTEM managing director Michelle Dow, says: “MerseySTEM do amazing things to promote Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths in schools, business, the community and beyond! Our future plans are huge and unbelievably exciting so it’s a fantastic feeling to be spreading our wings.”
“We would like to thank all of our schools and supporters, as our success is down to them and the hard work and dedication of our team. This is the next phase, a whole new level…our motto is to ‘make it happen’ and we are! We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our second home at Baltic Creative!”
