‘Bright, young things…’
Our Ignition* Creative Sparks programme has so far enabled nine exceptionally creative young people in the East Midlands to develop their skills, passion and talent, by supporting them financially, and pairing them with a mentor to help support and guide their development. Their capacities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics have enabled them to act as role models for their peers and help to raise their educational and career expectations and aspirations. The Creative Sparks programme began as part of the Ignite! NESTA programme, and for more information on the Creative Sparks, and the programme itself, please visit www.ignitefutures.org.uk.
