Big things have been happening this month at Paisley YMCA!
Last week at our STEM clubs, our young people set up our new smart gardens which are currently displayed in our window display at our space at 39 High Street.
Each of our gardens grows an assortment of yellow tomatoes, lettuces and basil. Assisted by the unique set up of their water tank and UV light to help them along, our gardens will hopefully be blooming soon in the spring with the help of our young people! They can be seen in our space and we can’t wait to see them bloom.
Another feature that can be viewed in the window of our space is our new 3D printer, which regularly shows the creation of our new prints every week. We have created several small animal mascots already and intend to see which more ambitious prints we can create in the future.
Our new smart gardens and 3D printer are a part of our continued effort to support young people to explore STEM in a fun, interesting and accessible way. As these projects continue, our young people are looking forward to learning about healthy eating and sustainable gardening, designing and making cool and useful items through the use of technology and building up a valuable skill-set that they can take into their future.
We are looking forward to even more developments in time for summer! Tickets for our STEM clubs are available from Eventbrite.
