Jack Lowe, a student from St Mary’s School, was the proud recipient of family tickets to the Life Centre in Newcastle as a prize for winning a logo competition to help promote an upcoming STEM (Science Technology Engineering Maths) public event which is taking place within the town.
Mary Dalton, Mayor of Great Aycliffe, awarded Jack his prize during his class assembly, which was kindly donated by G. Little Garage.
The design was awarded first prize because of its simple, clear and graphic design and has been incorporated into the finished logo, which will be displayed in various places around Newton Aycliffe, in order to promote this exciting event.
Both Aycliffe Youth Council and Great Aycliffe Town Council have worked together to organise this event where  their aim is to promote STEM subjects in a fun and thought provoking way, hoping to engage the children and adults of our town.
The event will take place at the Oakleaf Sports Complex, on Friday 3rd July between 10am and 2pm. There will be many attractions including a science display from John Kilcoyne of  Brainiac fame, VEX Robots, Formula 1 cars and much more.
Schools from around the town will be attending and is also open to the public and more information about the day will be published in Newton News.

Mayor and Jack
