Our Schools programme

Thursday 27th September 2018 9:00AM – 9:00AM

The Science Festival Team is proud to be working with local Primary and Secondary Schools to support teaching staff and engage students by staging STEM related events.

As well as conventional talks we aim to deliver hands-on workshops, which the students and schools prefer, to raise understanding of STEM career opportunities and encourage students to consider continuing to choose STEM subjects. The nature of the workshops is to be enjoyable and educational. The festival team either deliver these activities directly or seek funding to secure professional presenters. Please contact us if you can support this work in any capacity.

These events take place throughout the year including STEM weeks at local schools. They include:
