To celebrate British Science Week, Robert Gordon University is bringing together organisations from across Orkney for pupils to take part in an interactive exhibition of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

The STEM Open Evening will feature an exciting showcase of hands-on activities for school pupils to learn about careers in STEM. It’s free to attend and pupils will get involved in blood-smear analysis techniques, creating stamp rockets, and even extracting DNA from strawberries.

Among the organisations set to share exciting opportunities with pupils at the event are the European Marine Energy Centre, Xodus and Roving Eye Enterprises, and NOV Completion & Production Solutions.

The event takes place on Wednesday 11 March from 7pm to 8.30pm in the Robert Rendall Building within the Orkney Research and Innovation Campus in Stromness. The campus is designed to grow existing research and innovation in the area and expand on Orkney’s world-leading marine renewables, energy and low-carbon sector.
