The Odyssey Trust is a charity with charitable goals to advance public education and provide facilities for leisure and recreation. The Trust also works with other organisations where these goals align and we can work together to deliver social impact.
200 Primary six pupils were given the opportunity to attend an interactive field-day at the SSE Arena, Belfast and W5. The programme was a joint venture between Arenacross, W5, and the STEM Ambassadors involved in the construction project from ARUP, Graham Farrans JV and the Institution of Civil Engineers. Pupils watched the construction and production crew turn the Arena into a dirt-filled racetrack to highlight how STEM can be applied to the adrenaline-charged Arenacross tour.
During 2018/19 we embarked on a new early years initiative ‘The Dragon from the Lagan’ which aimed to bring an interactive learning experience to a wider demographic of young children in Northern Ireland. Working with Sure Starts in East and West Belfast, W5 supported STEM engagement for parents with children aged under four, living in the 25% most disadvantaged areas.

A funded programme between The Odyssey Trust and the Department for Communities, the Odyssey Ice Academy helps create better life chances for young people with experience of the care system by building their skills and self-esteem. The Academy provides young people with a unique opportunity through leisure and recreation to learn and work together to overcome challenges, supporting wellbeing and better life chances.
