Wigan S.T.E.A.M

What we do

Wigan S.T.E.A.M. is a participatory arts organisation which aims to build connections between STEM, culture and heritage. At Wigan S.T.E.A.M. we offer people meaningful and empowering learning opportunities, through our programme of workshops and exhibitions, and access to making facilities for the local community. Alongside this, we also work on specific creative and heritage-based projects. We are based largely at The Creative Hub on Library St, Wigan, but we also pop up in schools, libraries, and other community settings across the Borough.

Workshops we run cover many areas, including:

  • Digital and interactive arts
  • Coding (Scratch, Python & Processing)
  • Physical computing & electronics (Raspberry Pi & Arduino)
  • Game design
  • Animation
  • 3D Printing
  • Drone Coding
  • Screen printing

We run Maker Nights for adults each Wednesday which alternate between Crafts and Creative Tech, as well as Code Up once a month, Code Club on Saturday mornings, and Art Lab for families once a month. Find out more about these sessions as well as information on other upcoming activities to get involved with in our Events section.
