What’s New?

Can air crush a 220 litre steel drum?

Yes it can, along with some hot water, cold water... and did we mention the flamethrower?

Watch all the action, as Dr Michelle Dickinson MNZM, the original Nanogirl, and Gareth Baston who plays Nanogirl’s lab assistant, Boris, put air pressure to the test in this impressively implosive experiment.

Our Mission

Creating opportunity through STEM

Everyone, everywhere should have the opportunity to dream bigger and achieve more with STEM.

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics aren’t exclusive clubs. Everyone, regardless of gender or socio-economic status, anywhere on this planet, should be given the chance to engage with STEM and the opportunities it holds.

Research shows that if meaningful interaction with STEM doesn’t happen before the age of twelve, we risk losing our future STEM innovators and change makers forever. Through innovation and collaboration we will continue to inspire, educate and empower, on our mission to make STEM accessible to all.
