It is with deep regret that, given Government guidance and the continuing circumstances around Coronavirus – Covid 19, we must inform you that Get up to Speed with STEM 2020, planned to take place at Magna Science Adventure Centre on 25th March 2020 is being cancelled.
Working alongside key partners and supporters in light of the interactive hands on nature of Get up to Speed, the volume of people attending, potential risk this poses and duty of care in not spreading the virus it is agreed that this the most appropriate course of action to take.
As most of you are aware work-wise is a small charity so the many kind comments and generous support received are sincerely appreciated. I would like also to acknowledge the hard work John, Janice and a huge team of dedicated partners and contributors have put into planning and organising the event. Whilst hugely disappointing for all concerned, we hope you will understand we have no choice given the current circumstances.
Thank you and please be reassured that Get up to Speed with STEM will be back – on 24th March 2021 !
