A new £1.2m science and technology education centre has opened at a Bournemouth college.

The centre at Bournemouth and Poole College will specialise in the so-called "stem" subjects - science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Facilities include new laboratories and teaching areas.

Principal Lawrence Vincent said that despite the economic climate, the high skills jobs which are available are in the "stem" subjects.

The college is also working with local industry to offer placements to students.
