Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

University of the West of Scotland (UWS) has launched a partnership with PACE Theatre Company to deliver an interactive, drama-based workshop which is hoped will inspire primary school children to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

 

The workshops ‘Engineering Wonder’ hosted at PACE Theatre Company’s Paisley studios, launched the new partnership. The interactive workshops were aimed to local families and in particular for children between the ages of 7 and 12 and explored gender-based stereotypes and how to challenge them through creative drama performances.
