Scientists in Our Community is our new photography exhibition coproduced by local communities and generously sponsored and supported by HLM Architects, Wardell Armstrong and Hydrock, who are working on Techniquest’s new extension (opening Spring 2020).
The brief for entries was simple; capture an image or portrait of someone with an interest or background in STEM. For many young people, the key to engagement in STEM is the inclusion of the Arts to create STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths).
The gallery, which lends a new look and feel to our science and discovery centre, is the first of many projects which will be of, by and for our communities. The exhibition highlights the diversity of Cardiff and breakdown the barriers of how STEM is perceived.
