Mark your calendars for an electrifying experience as STEMFest comes to Yorkshire! 2nd, 3rd and 4th of July get ready to be captivated by the marvels of STEM fields in the region as we ignite the imaginations of the next generation at the Life Centre in Bradford.

Businesses will be invited to deliver fun, interactive sessions relating to their industry.

STEMFest Yorkshire is made possible through the generous support of the headline sponsor Cummins, whose commitment to STEM education and outreach helps to make events like this possible.

“Cummins is focused on expanding STEM education initiatives and increasing our impact around the world,” said Jonathan Wood, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at Cummins. “Our commitment to STEM education and outreach is central to our core values at Cummins, and we believe it is vital to building a sustainable future. That's why we are proud to sponsor STEMFest Yorkshire, an event that offers a unique opportunity to inspire and educate young people about the many exciting and rewarding careers available in the STEM sector.”

STEMFest aims to encourage and engage young people from local schools in STEM subjects, and it will be open to groups from state-funded schools, including Primary and Secondary years. This event promises to be an unforgettable experience filled with interactive exhibits, captivating demonstrations, and hands-on activities designed to ignite curiosity and passion. The Life Centre is a unique location providing an ideal backdrop for STEMfest, bringing a dynamic and creative atmosphere to the event. Over 3000 young people aged from 10 – 14yrs from the region’s schools are expected to attend the event across three days.

We look forward to welcoming students and STEM enthusiasts from STEM companies from across the Yorkshire and Humber region to join us. I also want to thank Cummins, as without this kind of support events like this simply wouldn’t be possible”.
