Business news. The ATL Learning Centre aims to inspire and encourage children and young people from backgrounds with limited resources, to pursue careers in the field of Science and Technology through the delivery of workshops and motivational speeches.

We have decided to put this event together because we want to support government efforts in promoting the learning of Sciences, especially amongst the African and African-Caribbean communities. According to government publications, the UK needs to have higher rates of students taking the Science route, if Britain is to compete in the global economy.

We think that our event will be an excellent opportunity for children to explore and investigate and also developing analytical thinking and problem solving skills. Children and young people will learn how things work and how technology is used to improve the quality of our lives, as well as talking to people that are already in the field.
