As a world-leading organisation with engineering, innovation and technology at its heart, ORE Catapult is passionate about STEM and community engagement within its local communities to deliver inspiring, meaningful and impactful social benefit.
With locations throughout the UK, our STEM and community engagement programmes are aligned to engage with and meet the respective needs of local education and community partners.
To date, we have provided STEM engagement for thousands of young learners, joined national STEM programmes and embedded our organisation as a key member of community groups. We provide STEM and community engagement in a number of different ways from our locations, including Glasgow, Levenmouth, Blyth, Grimsby and Pembrokeshire.
