The Powerhouse Museum has launched a series of free STEM workshops for students and young people at its Parramatta Square Community Space.

Chief Executive of the Powerhouse, Lisa Havilah said the Community Space in Parramatta Square had received more than 1,200 visitors since it opened in December last year.

Ms Havilah said the overwhelming majority of visitors lived locally in Western Sydney and had shown great excitement and anticipation for the Powerhouse.

“We have been thrilled by the community response to Powerhouse Parramatta over the past four months at our Community Space,” Ms Havilah said.

“There has been overwhelming positivity and anticipation for the Museum from people within the Western Sydney community,” she said.

“We are excited to announce the extension of our popular workshops for students and young people in the Community Space in Parramatta.”

Ms Havilah said the new series of programming, which launched over the weekend (10 April), was aimed at children aged eight to 12 and would include game design, creating music synthesisers and solar car workshops.

She said the new free STEM workshop series would run each Saturday until 29 May.
