Wigan S.T.E.A.M

Ready, steady… TECH!

As part of Wigan S.T.E.A.M’s February half-term activities, the S.T.E.A.M team, alongside the S.T.E.A.M Ambassadors, Wigan UTC and Ultimaker delivered a 1-day Techathon in which children, young people, and adults could come together to design a protoype app that addressed a social issue. The techathon fostered an environment of curiosity and creativity for all the family and as well as desgining, constructing and presenting their prototype app, our teams also create brands and merchandise using laser cutters, printers and other fab bits of kit!

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes at the Techathon video below that the S.T.E.A.M Ambassadors produced…
