CHILDREN will have the chance to engage their passion for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) at an event in Prudhoe next month.

Youngsters aged eight to 13 will be able to find out more about STEM subjects at the Fuse Media Centre in half term.

A full day event on Tuesday, February 18 will include three workshops run by industry experts, exploring technology through robotics, film, photography, and scientific experiments.

Coun. Wayne Daley , cabinet member for children’s services at Northumberland County Council said: “As a council we wish to promote them by engaging with local schools, children and businesses to increase the opportunities available in our county and showcase the exciting and varied career opportunities that the STEM subjects can open up.”
