The Work-wise Foundation Engages Local Youth at Remake Learning Event in Doncaster

The Work-wise Foundation proudly participated in the recent Remake Learning event held at Mexborough Business Centre on Thursday, March 15, 2024. The event, aimed at engaging young people and their families during the half-term break, offered an array of stimulating activities and learning experiences.

Remake Learning, a four-day event offering free and low-cost learning opportunities, attracted attendees of all ages with its diverse lineup of activities. From digital Lego and exciting science experiments to ukulele lessons and a unique courtroom experience for older youths, the event fostered curiosity and passion across the community.

The Work-wise Foundation contributed to the event's success by hosting a mini drop-in STEMFest session, where young participants delved into hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities. From building and flying planes to launching rockets and experimenting with magnets, attendees explored various aspects of STEM education in an engaging and interactive environment.

John Barber, CEO of The Work-wise Foundation, expressed enthusiasm about the event's impact on local youth, stating, "It was great to welcome so many local young people to Mexborough last week – we had children from 4 months through to teenagers all getting stuck in and enjoying STEM activities which we hope will inspire them to consider careers in the industry."

The event, which took place at popular community venues across Mexborough and Denaby, including Family Hubs, libraries, youth hubs, and Fox Gallery, served as a testament to the power of collaboration and community engagement in promoting lifelong learning and career exploration.

Another festival will take place in May this year, for more details please see: Remake Learning Days Doncaster - City of Doncaster Council
