STEM at Arnotts
STEM is coming to Arnotts' Childrenswear Department, where fun and education combine.
STEM is an education curriculum that focuses heavily on the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. With STEM, children have the opportunity to take part in STEM activities/workshops. This event will take place at Arnotts Department Store.
