This is an event for Year 5 and Year 6 primary pupils who will be making their subject choices in the coming years and is designed to encourage increasing numbers of pupils to choose Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects. The day is full of interactive workshops such as:

Places are limited across all schools with a maximum of 20 for each school, so early registration is essential and will be strictly first come, first served. We would like to encourage you to bring along the pupils who you believe may have an interest in STEM.

Primary children and school staff will be expected to bring their own lunch. 

As we aim to promote our outreach in the Burnley area, Burnley primary schools will be given priority.
