Every year, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust Small Grants programme gives out grants of up to £20,000 to support science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education projects in the West Midlands. We have funded many different projects across all areas of STEM, supporting learning development for young students.

Here is another great example of the type of work we do, this project was funded in 2020 and shows the power of what the grants funding can achieve for STEM organisations.

Who are Aston Villa Foundation?

The Aston Villa Foundation is a registered charity that delivers the community and social responsibility work of Aston Villa Football Club. With a mission of ‘Working Together to Enrich Lives’, the foundation and its partners work with people from a variety of backgrounds in Birmingham as well as supporting the wider ‘Aston Villa family’ through schools, football in the community, disability, health and wellbeing, education, interventions and community relations.

Why did they apply for a Millennium Point Grant?

The Aston Villa Foundation reached out to the Millennium Point Charitable Trust to help support it’s STEM Stars: Science Through Football project. The project will be developed across six schools, all within a three-mile radius of Villa Park. The funding will be used to purchase a Sphero robot package (which includes robots and a small pitch) that uses football to engage young people in coding. The students will learn and use specific lines of code to operate a moving ball on the pitch, recreating Aston Villa goals from the Premier League season.

The video below showcases this process in action on our Platform event space.

What impact has the project made?

The project has so far been a huge success, impacting a cluster of schools within the Aston area. It gives children the perfect opportunity to fully engage in computer science, in a fun way that keeps them interested to learn new skillsets. The grant provided by Millennium Point has allowed these schools to run these activities, which otherwise wouldn’t of been able to due to a lack of funding and resources.

Aston Villa Foundation using football to unlock new learning potential

The Aston Villa Foundation have been hugely pleased with the results and potential of the project. They caught up with us for a chat and said: “The funding will allow us to be innovative with our provision in schools and make a difference within the local community by equipping the next generations with potential skill sets of the future and looking positively ahead in an ever-evolving technological world.

It will provide us with a further opportunity to have a positive impact on children and schools, by enriching their curriculums through this unique programme to experience, learn and develop through STEM, with the power of football and the club as a key instigator to unlocking learning potential.”

Want to get your school involved?

The Aston Villa Foundation will be targeting schools in it’s local community around Villa Park, these areas include Erdington, Ladywood and Perry Barr. For more information please email Paul Hughes by clicking below.

We have funded many different projects across all areas of STEM, supporting learning development for young students.

Here is another great example of the type of work we do, this project was funded in 2019 and shows the power of what the grants funding can achieve for STEM organisations.

Who are Wolves Play Café?

Wolves Play Café are a not-for-profit organisation, that support young children and their parents and caregivers in Wolverhampton.

Why did they apply for a Millennium Point Grant?

A major challenge facing many families in the Whitmore Reans, St Peter’s Ward in inner-city Wolverhampton area, is having few opportunities to explore local attractions or paid experiences. There is a lack of accessible science activities for 0-5 children in this area of the city outside of school and pre-school for parents and caregivers, to interact with their children without price, time and location barriers.

Wolves Play Café reached out to the Millennium Point Charitable Trust to fund a project called “The World Around Us”, which aims to deliver ten 2 hour science play sessions in term-time from September 2019 to July 2020 for under 5s and their caregivers in Wolverhampton.

What impact has the project made?

With the help of the grant, the project has gone from strength to strength, impacting over 80 children and 50 parents/caregivers in Wolverhampton. The turnout for each session was overwhelmingly positive with each one fully booked. Over 70% of attendees also made a request to return for additional sessions.

Feedback from the project revealed that parents saw an increase in interest from children in STEM related subjects following the sessions. This long term investment has allowed for many young children to kickstart their future, learning key skills that will be pivotal for many years to come.

The Play Café were “thrilled”

Wolves Play Café couldn’t hide their delight at the results of the play sessions and said: “We are thrilled to receive our grant from Millennium Point Charitable Trust. This has enabled Wolves Play Café to access and engage with 100 under 5s across 10 and 75 caregivers across 10 ‘The World Around Us’ play sessions.”

“The project, with the help of this grant, has created opportunities for very young children to develop their STEM learning from an early age, by delivering ten sessions across 10 months but the resources and planning used to deliver them will be a long-term investment in STEM in the region as it provides the organisation with the opportunity to repeat the sessions and their proposed impacts following the initial programme.”

“Under 5s will have opportunities to develop curiosity in the world around us’, to develop basic problem-solving and experiment skills and develop a basic knowledge of natural science. Furthermore, parents and caregivers of under 5s will have an opportunity to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, increasing their wellbeing. By parents and caregivers also being part of the sessions, there will be an opportunity to build science capital in both children and adult audiences, again supporting the regional STEM provision in the West Midlands.”

Want to play?

Wolves Play Café believe that children develop and learn best through play and first-hand experiences. If your interested in getting your child involved you can book by clicking the button below. All sessions are planned with Covid-19 guidelines in mind to help keep everyone safe.

Today is International Youth Day, learn about what this awareness day is all about, and what we do to support young people.

What is International Youth Day all about?

Launching in 2000, International Youth Day is an annual awareness day held on the 12th August. The purpose of the day is to celebrate the qualities of young people and recognise the challenges that young people face in today’s world. Each year the day runs a theme which previously has covered a number of areas including education, employment and the environment. This years theme will be on “Transforming Food Systems”, with the day highlighting how this global effort could not be achieved without the support of young people.

For more information on this years event please click here.

How does Millennium Point support young people?

The Millennium Point Charitable Trust is passionate about supporting young people and contributes more than 5 million back into the West Midlands region through STEM related projects and events. One major issue in today’s world is a skills gap across a number of industries, where young people in deprived areas miss out on the learning needed to boost their career prospects.

To support this issue, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust launched a Small Grants programme, which gives out grants of up to £20,000 to support science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education projects in the West Midlands. We’ve seen an incredible transformation in young people’s learning environments, with many schools using the grant funding to further enhance subject areas, resulting in more skill gabs being filled by students. Below shows an example of the type of work we do and how powerful our grant funding is on young peoples education.

Here is another great example of the type of work we do, this project was funded in 2019 and shows the power of what the grants funding can achieve for STEM organisations.

Who are Great Bridge Primary?

Great Bridge Primary is a large primary school with over 500 students. The school sits in an area of known deprivation within the region. Like many of its kind, the school suffers from limited funding which means a restricted programme to engage pupils in the opportunities of STEM learning.

What’s the project all about?

In 2019, Great Bridge Primary reached out to the Millennium Point Charitable Trust by applying for one of our grant schemes to fund a project called “LEGO WeDo“. The project was set out to enhance the students learning within computing and coding, which would expand their currently limited curriculum. The grant-funded 17 LEGO WeDo sets, for coding lessons at the school alongside resources to help train staff in how to use the equipment. The students also used Lego WeDo software on an iPad, where they combined the two to build physical LEGO models including tilt and movement sensors and motors, which was controlled by code.

What impact has the project made?

The project has contributed to a significant impact on the students learning development and advancing their skillset within computing and coding. Off the back of the project, Great Bridge Primary have been able to deliver an enhanced curriculum with the resources purchased via the grant becoming a staple of their education. Student engagement has also seen a positive reaction within computer science, with many students picking it as their favourite lesson and showing stronger enthusiasm for STEM subjects.

The project has also benefitted many staff members at Great Bridge, improving their confidence within computing and coding, allowing them to set more engaging and “outside-of-the-box” tasks for the pupils.

Great Bridge Primary were delighted with the impact the project made and said: “Enhancing the computing curriculum for upper Key Stage 2 at Great Bridge has had an immediate impact. The children who have taken part in the initial part of the project have had the opportunity to see how coding can be used to control a range of physical mechanisms and relate this to developing knowledge of coding in real-life scenarios. As a school, we will not look back on our Computing curriculum but instead, this project has made us look to the future and consider how we can inspire children to engage with STEM.”

Millennium Point wins Excellence in Hospitality & Retail award at 2021 Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Awards.

We received the award due to the fundamental role our landmark venue has played in protecting the region, and leading hospitality, during the pandemic – including our rapid response to covid-19 and becoming the first mass vaccination centre in the West Midlands. The announcement was made on Tuesday night in the prestigious awards ceremony held online via the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce website.

We are delighted to see the hard work of our team recognised and rewarded after a such a difficult period of time for the industry. Despite the pandemic limiting a lot of activity across the country, our venue excelled in highlighting how professional and robust we are as an events and conference venue.

Rebecca Delmore, Commercial Director added “Words cannot describe how proud I am of the whole Millennium Point team for achieving this milestone. This last year has been crippling for the events & hospitality industry. Our team has risen to the challenge and come out of it with some exceptional achievements which demonstrate what Millennium Point is all about.”

What have we achieved?

Bringing “normality” back
Our venue has remained agile and forward-thinking throughout the pandemic. Our venue was one of the first to publish a response to tackling the pandemic. In May 2020, we published our Client Protection Plan and implemented a number of safety measures in place to make our venue safe and secure for staff and visitors.

In the summer of 2020, we launched a programme of socially distanced film screenings to provide the public with entertainment and escapism during the restrictions. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive with film goers commenting they felt safe and appreciated the opportunity to ‘feel normal’.

Making history and protecting lives
Millennium Point made history in January of this year as we became the first Mass Vaccination Centre for the West Midlands. Our team worked diligently alongside the NHS Birmingham and Solihull, to transform our spaces ensuring we created a safe and welcoming environment for the public. Our staff went the extra mile and were on site and online 24/7 to aid staff, volunteers and the public as well as give information where necessary. The opening week of our vaccination centre saw top media outlets visit our venue including Sky News, BBC and Channel 4.

New and improved Auditorium
We didn’t stop there as we invested over £350,000 into upgrading our Auditorium, formerly the first IMAX in Birmingham, to include a larger stage and more sophisticated AV equipment, improved lighting, and rigging. Additionally, we transformed the projection room and reception areas into studio spaces where we have hosted a number of events including Q&As, Music Recordings and live streams.

The future of events
In May we ran our first ever Hybrid event in our new and improved Auditorium. Talking Point: The Future of Events, was a free to attend (physically or virtually) two hour conference that examined the roadmap to recovery for events and the rising importance of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The event was a huge success and received positive feedback from attendees. We also saw a rise in enquiries for our new range of Hybrid and Virtual event packages.

Our diverse event spaces

We have a diverse mix of 17 event spaces here at Millennium Point, enabling us to provide a great deal of flexibility for clients. We have the benefit of having both public and private event spaces which means we can provide everything from a small meeting for three people to a large-scale public exhibition for up to 1500 people. With seminar spaces, a 354-seater Auditorium, bar area and flexible workspaces we pride ourselves on putting the customer first and work closely with our existing and prospective clients to deliver their event to the highest standard.

What’s on at Millennium Point?

Over the past 6 years, the charitable trust have given more than £25m back into the local region. This means every time someone books, hosts, attends an event, or becomes a tenant, they help us support more projects in Birmingham and the wider region.
