With an extensive background as an engineer, Roisin Crawford established STEM Aware in 2011 which aims to encourage ‘every child’ to engage in the world of STEM from an early age right through to career choices. This was enthused as a result of wanting to know how children learn as Roisin supports her own four children in school. STEM Aware believes any and every child has potential to thrive in scientific enquiry and the strength of engineering that will lead to a career path in STEM. Gender, nor ability, nor social background should dictate the opportunities that a child should experience through life. STEM Aware is delivering interactive and exciting STEM workshops and activities to children and young people that embrace the Northern Ireland Curriculum and link it with industry. firstname.lastname@example.org / 07713598617
