What do Computing students do? STEM

Ben Foward, a second year student within the Department of Computing and Immersive  Technologies, University of Northampton, has been actively involved with STEM outreach activities. These include running activities but also being the student representative on the university-wide STEM Steering Group (http://mypad.northampton.ac.uk/stem/stem-steering-group/) .
