An ambassador with a curious mind
If curiosity is the lubricant for learning, then Scienceworks Museum is the place to challenge curious minds of all ages.
“Not only does Scienceworks make geeky stuff cool, it’s a place that inspires the next generation of inventors and innovators,” says NDY director and Scienceworks STEM ambassador Benita Husband.
Benita was recently announced as a Scienceworks STEM ambassador alongside 11 other business and community leaders, to promote new experiences to engage youngsters with Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Ground Up: Building Big Ideas Together will open in December 2017 with construction-led activities for babies to five year olds and Beyond Perception, opening April 2018, will engage teens with the hidden world of wave forms.
“As our brains develop we are engaged and learn differently, so its fantastic to see that a STEM space at Scienceworks has been purposefully created for teenagers,” says Benita. “There are plenty of exciting educational play spaces for young children, and adults can access the museum’s facilities, but there has been a gap to date to target this important age group who are at a stage when they’re making decisions about their future careers.”
