The next meeting of the Paignton Library STEM Group is this Saturday (10th December 2022).

The meeting should be a mixed bag of activities. In addition to the usual coding that carries on from our Code Club, we have the following planned activities:

Some activities may take place in Room 12, at the end of the corridor, however our main base is still the IT learning centre.

• Chemistry Reaction Rates (practical)
◦ Molymod Activity
▪ Building Nucleobase models
▪ Building Organic Chemistry Functional Groups

We also hope to look at projects that people are bringing along with them.

If anyone would like to have a go, or carry on with Scratch, Hour of Code etc then there are computers available for this. It is advisable to to bring along login details for online platforms if you already have accounts.

If you have a Raspberry Pi we DO have a few spare monitors that these can be plugged in to, in addition to a few keyboards and mice. So all you need to bring is the actual Pi and PSU.

The purpose of the Paignton Library STEM Group is to encourage and support participation in STEM subjects. Our event aims to create a friendly hub for STEM enthusiasts to share, collaborate and learn. Please do bring your personal STEM projects to the event, we would love to see what you are working on.

Some of our regular activities have included:
- Coding, Robotics and Electronics.
- Science Demos.
- Raspberry Pi, BBC Micro:bit, Lego WeDo.

The event is led by volunteers, who run a blog about the STEM Group and projects being worked on:
