The Brunel museum has secured a grant of £2000 to continue their Sophia’s Story Afterschool club into the new year, thanks to United St Saviour’s Charity.
This November, the Brunel Museum launched a series of engaging after-school (STEM) workshops for budding young engineers, scientists and architects. Each week, through hands-on creative activities, children learn all about different types of energy, how physical forces work and how to construct the perfect building design.
Thanks to the support of the United St Saviours charity with supports Southwark residents, the Museum will be able to run the programme for a second cohort of children in the first months of 2023.
The sessions are led by a team of inspiring STEM ambassadors, trained by Stemazing – a charity which champions diversity and inclusion in STEM
“STEMAZING is delighted to partner with The Brunel Museum in London to provide training and support to 4 women in STEM who are stepping up as visible role models to inspire the next generation through their fun, engaging after school STEM Club. Not only will the children have a blast getting curious and creative with hands-on STEM activities, but they will see for themselves that STEM is not just for the boys. This is why female role models are critical in STEM. You can’t be what you can’t see!” – Alex Knight, Stemazing
“We’re really pleased to be supporting the Brunel Museum and levelling up the young people in Rotherhithe.” – United St Saviour’s Charity
