Coastal STEMfest: Setting the Course for Careers in STEM
Enthusing the Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians of the future
Forging links with businesses in the STEM community
Providing exciting hands-on experience of the latest innovations
Coastal STEMfest is a programme of interactive events taking place in February and March 2017 which includes demonstrations, workshops, shows and a careers day. Hundreds of young people are involved, along with their parents and teachers, and anyone who has an interest in, or works in STEM.
It aims to enthuse the next generation to study and build careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, and to develop the tools and techniques that will drive the economy of the future.
The programme culminates in the Big Bang at Butlin’s, Bognor Regis on Tuesday 14th March 2017. Please check out the gallery from last year’s Big Bang @ Butlin’s or the video from the Big Bang Fair South East so you can see what Big Bangs are all about.
