M-SParc On Tour

We're excited to have the chance to take our tech on the road with our #OnTour programme.

M-SParc is more than just a building of bricks and mortar - its a movement!

 

M-SParc is currently #OnTour in Bangor and Pwllheli! 

The tour involves bringing M-SParc’s ethos of innovation and inspiration to new communities, to stimulate businesses and encourage more people to take an interest in science and technology.

What we do #OnTour

Our #OnTour locations are temporary homes to all the activities which take place in the flagship building on Anglesey, including a Ffiws Maker Space, hot desks, co-working space, business, design, technology and innovation workshops and seminars, as well as science and technology sessions for young people.

In 2019 and early 2020 M-SParc went on tour in Bethesda and Botwnnog, engaging almost 700 people in four months in a project to promote, stimulate and support businesses in the Technology and Science sector to grow in the region. In September 2021 we went #OnTour to Colwyn Bay and established a location in Caernarfon, bringing innovation and business support to Conwy and continuing our work in Gwynedd.

In 2022, we signed a 3 year lease to open and run our #OnTour location on Bangor High Street, before moving from Colwyn Bay down the Llŷn Peninsula to Pwllheli in 2023. To date, we’ve run hundreds of events at our #OnTour locations, including workshops, seminars and Clwb Sparci, our weekly after-school club.

Keep an eye on our events page to book your place in our next event.

The tour is a direct result of M-SParc wanting to deliver a regional impact in the Creative, Science and Technology sectors, to stimulate businesses and encourage more people to take an interest in science and technology.

By being rooted in the communities of north-west Wales, M-SParc will inspire the next generation to take an interest in these vital sectors and foster collaboration between industry and Bangor University.

Tom used to work at the KFC in his hometown of Colwyn Bay before it mysteriously burned down. He then spent several years “on the lam” in East Germany, where he worked as an animator in Berlin. When the wall fell, Tom came home.

He enjoys climbing and hates ice-skating.
