The Newton Academy was launched at the University of Lincoln on 21 June 2014.The Academy runs a 3-year program for 11-14 year olds. Science and technology-themed workshops are full of hands-on activities and projects to inspire and enthuse our next generation of female scientists and engineers. Workshops are delivered by staff and students at the University of Lincoln and by local science-based industry. Together we aim to generate interest and excitement for science and technology, and show that science is FUN!
