Projects With Pride Sees Record Breaking Numbers!
Claire Willis, STEM Business Development Manager attended the celebration on behalf on the North East STEM Hub and comments:
"The North East STEM hub were delighted to be involved for the first year with the Projects with pride awards. So many inspiring young people doing some incredible work in their local communities often under challenging circumstances. A huge well done to everyone who was shortlisted and what a fantastic event to be a part of."
