The events are being hosted by Nerve Centre FabLab, CultureTECH and STEM Aware.

The FabLab team will be on hand with state-of-the-art digital equipment to help children bring their imagination to life.

Ther young people can create hair-raising Halloween decorations, or even creepy costume accessories, using 3D printers and laser cutters.

All you need to bring with you is your creativity.

Fans of Minecraft will be able to se the hugely popular gaming software to create their own Halloween character – from skeletons, pumpkins, ghosts to ghastly ghouls or maybe even a magical witch.

STEM Aware will have everyone making slimy alien creatures, getting acquainted with real zombie brains, blood and bones, catching spiders and putting them back in their webs and solving mystery crimes; Who stole Freddie? Was it you? Perhaps the clues of the crime are in the slime!

The fun kicks off on Friday 30th October from 12pm - 4pm at Caw Youth Club.

All the events are free and delivered as part of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Science and Innovation programme. Booking is not required.
