#ThinkUTC Day 2016

Today (Friday 18 March) will see the first ever #ThinkUTC day; a day that celebrates the work that UTCs do to inspire young people to pursue an education and career in science, engineering, technology and maths (STEM).

University Technical Colleges across the country will be opening its doors to the public to host events which showcase the work they and their students do, and to get the community engaged with STEM subjects.

Here is a flavour of what events are happening on #ThinkUTC day:

You can find a full list of events on the Think UTC 2016 website.
