As a leading social enterprise, Young Workforce Development is at the core of everything we do. Our workshops have been developed to include career education. Within this, we draw on real-life careers across The Experience to inspire young minds. What’s more, The Experience also provides invaluable employment training; skills development and education to learners aged 16+ who face difficulties entering the job market.
STEAM+ at The Experience has a dedicated area within the Leisure & Learning Centre. Each of our unique spaces have been designed with learning in mind, ensuring that our interactive programmes are also an opportunity to educate.
Our base is unique and offers a diverse space for use in our daily programmes. We have exclusive access to Scotland’s only indoor electric Go-karting Arena, our on-site restaurant ‘The Academy Restaurant’, our very own Laser Experience, an eight lane Slot car race track and an Urban Garden, allowing us to cater for a variety of outdoor learning experiences. Additionally, our Departure Lounge is a distinct space which will include the fuselage of a Boeing 737.
Children are the leaders in their own learning with STEAM+ at The Experience and we create an imaginative context for learning to take place. Our settings and scenarios place the child in the role of expert, inventor, scientist, experimenter or investigator. These young learners work collaboratively to analyse, evaluate and problem solve to promote a deeper understanding of the STEAM+ subject areas.
