IDC Campaign Success

27th May 2018

Our 'Inspire, Design, Create' Campaign designed to engage Cardiff schoolchildren in STEM subjects, using role models from industry and higher education to inspire the architects, engineers, scientists and designers of the future was a huge success.

Over 400 children took part in our competition to design the 'Science Museum of the Future' to feed into Techniquest's 5 million pounds expansion plans.

Paul Wong, Director of Lee Wakemans said "There is a genuine challenge presented to the Welsh workforce by the reported lack of interest and achievement in STEM subjects at a higher level in Wales.

"We wanted to take a proactive approach to addressing the issue by working with schoolchildren to increase their participation and achievement in STEM subjects and then in STEM careers for the future benefit of the industry and economy.

"The 'Inspire, Design, Create' campaign is a fantastic way to begin to do this , and to really make a difference to schoolchildren with our partners in the initiative, Techniquest and Cardiff University."
