Get creative with STEM-based learning in our summer holiday Mic Lab series

This summer, kids aged 11-16 can explore science, technology, engineering and maths in exciting new ways in our Made in Coventry Lab (Mic Lab) workshops. Running throughout the school holidays, these interactive sessions provide opportunities for teenages learn and get creative with everything from animation and computer programming to city planning and sustainable design.

HAF spaces are available at all of our Mic Lab sessions this summer. HAF is the Holiday and Activities Food Programme from Coventry City Council, funded by the Department for Education. If your child receives free school meals and lives in Coventry, they should be eligible. For further information and to book any of the above activities, free of charge and with a pre-packed lunch provided for your child too, please visit the Coventry City Council website.
