Bookings now open for STEM Village quiet hour at Air Waves Portrush

Wed, August 22, 2018

Individuals with additional needs can look forward to an enhanced experience at The STEM Village during Air Waves Portrush.

From 10am – 11am on Saturday 1st September and Sunday 2nd September, visitors can browse the full range of exhibits within a quiet environment. This means there will be no background music or loudspeaker announcements and noise levels will be minimised as much as possible. There will also be a reduced number of people on-site which will help to enhance the quiet environment and the marquees used for the STEM exhibition are all fully wheelchair accessible.

The STEM Village, sponsored by MJM, is bigger than ever featuring over 20 exhibitors.

Located in East Strand car park, it provides a bespoke space for employers and education providers to showcase facilities, projects and skills in an engaging and interactive way. The line-up, including the Royal Aeronautical Society, Bombardier, Sentinus and Survitec, promises visitors an inspiring and interactive experience. Since its successful introduction at Air Waves Portrush in 2016, the STEM Village has doubled in size and is now a highlight of the ground attractions across the weekend.

This is a free event although booking is essential so if you feel that you or your family would benefit from a quiet STEM experience register your place by emailing Eilish.kelly@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk
