Bringing STEAM into Hulme is a 2 month series of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) workshops that celebrate the creativity of arts and sciences in a local setting. Sessions range of sketching local wildlife to making instruments from e-junk and they are free to attend.

We also invite participants and local tinkerers to showcase their own creative STEAM projects, and pitch for small pots of funding, at Hulme’s first local maker faire on 22 July.
