Universeum's club for young people interested in science

Science Club, Universeum is a leisure activity for children with a newly awakened or already great interest in the STEM (science, technology, engineering och mathematics). The club starts in January,  with the aim to deepen children's interest and increase their involvement within the STEM-subjects.


STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The need for people with more knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics has been highlighted by many, including the government, which in 2023 began working on developing a national STEM strategy.

STEM competence is highly sought after when society and companies are to make the sustainable transition. Universeum's Science Club is aimed towards 9–11-year-olds, and the experiences aims to strengthen the children's interest and self-confidence in STEM. "A win-win for the children themselves and the world around them", something that  Maria Wirén, Universeum's head of development and learning points out.

"With science club, we create a place and content for young people who want to explore and deepen themselves in STEM-subjects. When we give fuel to their intrest, the likelihood of them choosing studies and work in STEM in the future increases. "

- Maria Wirén, Head of Development and Learning at Universeum.


As a participant in the Science Club, you get to deep dive into knowledge and discover the STEM subjects based on various questions and challenges. Universeum with all its environments will be used as a foundation, and the content is based on experiential learning. This gives the children practical experience of what they are interested in.
