Free places are available for teenagers during a week of science and technology projects at West Suffolk College.

The programme is part of the STEM Accelerator to support students with an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students aged 14-19 years old can apply for a place on the scheme, which is backed by business and will offer them the chance to gain industry-recognised awards and learn about potential career opportunities.

Activities will include computer games development, model car racing, GPS treasure hunting, theatre sound and lighting and digital media. The week will run at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds from October 26 to 30. For a place email stem@wsc.ac.uk, call 01284 716333 or visit www.westsuffolk.ac.uk
