For this STEAMlab we invite you to explore the theme “Re-Imagining The Pump - how can this fantastic youth facility better position itself as a hub for creative enterprise and learning for young people” Through recent investment in a makerspace and music studios, The Pump is seeking to maximise young people’s creativity and increase engagement to help motivate and inspire them to be the best they can, whilst developing a model for sustainability.

(Oh, and please bring your laptop along with you) ---- What is a STEAMlab? A STEAMlab is a hack-style event in which we bring regional creatives together to collaborate and work together to find a solution to a real problem faced by another business. The Pump will be the focus in this STEAMlab. Why? We believe that by working with peers from different industries, with different skillsets, we will be able to combine our knowledge and expertise to develop a solution to the problem – or as the old saying goes “two heads are better than one.” STEAMlabs are a high-energy, creative and collaborative event, with the opportunity for new solutions to be fast-tracked and/or funded for the next stage of development.   Why attend our STEAMlabs? Selected teams can gain access to support and funding to turn your ideas into solutions Discover new ways of thinking which can be applied to your business Make new connections with a variety of local professionals, creatives, SMEs and more Be inspired to innovate and take your business to the next level   Event Agenda: Day 1: 1)     Introduction and context 2)     Input - provocations, ideas, inspiration, examples 3)     Facilitated group work on ideas – using prompt questions to help explore the different themes. 4)     Small groups, discussion, capture ideas and cluster > use to form themes/topics for main working   Day 2: 1)     Understanding themes, choose working groups (small: 4-5 people), understanding skills and what you can bring to a discussion/group 2)     Starting to explore each theme in groups – open / divergent phase 3)     Refining those thoughts and ideas / solutions into – closing / convergent phase 4)     Pitching back / sharing ideas - to help focus the ideas into a clear form to aid communication   The exact agenda may be refined (or hacked. ) and shaped through further pre-work between the STEAMhouse and Pump teams.   The STEAMhouse team #STEAMlabs
