We’re way behind on our blogs and there’s lots more going on at the Arc and Artecology Ltd HQ this month and next… but on the way, some of the team will be out and about for a couple of days at the exciting-looking 2020 Noël Turner Science Festival!

Run by Winchester Science Centre and hosted by Official Cowes Enterprise College, the Noel Turner Science Festival is an annual event for Isle of Wight school students, ‘designed to help young people see the practical applications of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and to raise their ambitions and expectations.’

There’s a whole host of organisations coming along and we’ll be there representing natural sciences, ecology and art too!

Arc, Artecology and our not-for-profit The Common Space) specialise in environmental design and eco-engineering for biodiversity, and the all-essential social purpose of connecting human society with its natural environment, for the benefit of both. We combine ecological consulting and design, place-making and practical delivery with a host of free nature/community events to help shape better, healthier places for people and wildlife.

So if you’re an Isle of Wight student, teacher or parent, come and visit the Arc pop-up natural history museum (including the amazing MicroEye!), take a close-up at everyday wildlife, learn how natural sciences can help shape your future career… and discover how to make space for wildlife in the places where you live, work and study.
