NUSTEM Celebration

The Great Hall, Sutherland Building


NUSTEM Celebration Event

Thursday, 12 October 2017, 2pm – 6pm

The Great Hall, Sutherland Building, Northumbria University City Campus


Learning Seminar: 2pm – 4pm

Light Buffet: 4pm – 4:30pm

Celebration of our successes: 4:30pm – 6pm


I am delighted to invite you to join us and celebrate the third anniversary of NUSTEM (formerly Think Physics), as we relate the lessons that we have learned and the insights that we have gained.

NUSTEM has been at the forefront of applying science capital concepts, working with schools and families across the North-East in more than 60,000 engagements.

We believe our approach to STEM support at school, and in the home, offers a significant contribution towards closing the STEM skills gap, a rebalancing of gender divisions in the physical sciences and the promise of a more competitive regional economy.

In the learning seminar we will explore our findings, the understanding and models we've developed, and our recommendations for future directions. After a light buffet, we will celebrate our highlights and showcase the package of career-inspired activities we have developed for children, young people and their families.

I do hope that you are able to join us for all, or part, of our celebration. I should be grateful if you would fill in the form below to confirm your attendance by 4 October 2017.

With best wishes,

Dr Carol Davenport Director, NUSTEM
