STEMFest in Space 2021
Date: Thursday, 07th October 2021
Time: 09:30 - 19:00
Schools, colleges and community groups are counting down to one of the biggest space and astronomy events in the calendar. So get yourself signed up...
The STEMFest in Space virtual event combines classroom and hands-on learning in an exciting, fun-packed day, showcasing the many wonders of space. It is a perfect opportunity to learn about careers within the space sector and a chance to meet real astronauts and inspirational speakers.
As part of World Space Week (4-10 October), the event aims to encourage and engage as many young people as possible in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects to help them consider a career in this field when they are older.
Young people will be able to learn from the comfort of their own classroom and interact with STEM Ambassadors who work or support the international space industry.
The event will be delivered online and hosted by TV presenter and stage actor, Dallas Campbell, who will link the sessions in addition to presenting his own space- themed live talk.
Dallas is best known from the BBC One science series Bang Goes the Theory, and has presented many other science and space TV documentaries over the years. He says:
“Space is the perfect canvas for young people to explore and engage with all kinds of STEM subjects. I'm so looking forward to hosting the event and meeting some of the extraordinary people who have dedicated their lives to our greatest adventure. The countdown is ON!"
