User Research for a STEM Discovery Centre

User research for a STEM Discovery Centre – designing an inspiring and innovative hub for learning

Challenge
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects within schools continue to play a very important role in the wider economy. STEM subjects help ensure that high value sectors of the economy can continue to grow and deliver good employment opportunities for young people.

Work
Working alongside Rubicon Regeneration and Saville Jones Architects we provided specialist user research services to engage with teenagers via a Youth Parliament to identify their aspirations and needs along with a module of consultation with teachers.   We helped to assess the opportunity to develop a STEM Hub discovery science centre which will deliver opportunities to learn about science, technology, engineering and maths.

Outcome
The user research was used to inform the feasibility study and initial concept designs which have been submitted to the local authority and are forming the basis of a funding application to secure capital investment to deliver the project.
