Yesterday, me and my big girl had a day together.  We hardly ever get special time, but it came about because she was booked in to Curiosity Hub at Lighthouse Studios in Brighton, and K is too little (she’s 4).

The event was in celebration of Ida Lovelace Day (which is actually on Tuesday 14th October) – an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

We’ve come across Curiosity Hub previously, and B is currently attending their after-school session at the Cornerstone Community Centre and adoring it.

We originally met at the Mini Maker fair in Brighton, but I had heard about them and emailed back and forth a few times even before that.  I love what they are doing.  It should be happening every day in our schools.

Creative, interesting and inspiring stuff.  The children build models with Lego then add motors and link the whole thing up to a click and drag computer program to animate it all.

The session yesterday was a freebie to introduce girls specifically to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Curiosity Hub itself is for everyone  It’s simply a cool and interesting club for interested kids and is another one of the many reasons I am happy to live in this wonderful city.

This is not a sponsored post.  Just another fantastic example of people doing amazing things for kids locally.  Do support them – your kids will LOVE it.
