Just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved in running this event. We'd never been before and weren't sure what to expect but my 6 year old loved it! Very interactive, accessible and interesting (and all for free)! Excellent x

Absolutely brilliant for kids and adults alike - I thought it was going to be just a ‘kids’ thing and it wasn’t! We all actually learned a lot. The educational side of this festival is excellent. If you’ve not been you need to take the kids so they can see about their skills, their future and some amazing technological development as well as playing lots of different things. Unmissable.

Come a meet a wide variety of exhibitors that have STEM learning as a key role in their businesses.


Hands-on interactive learning is our main focus with all our exhibitors, so come and learn through fun play for children and adults alike.

Be inspired!

Our ultimate goal is for all visiting young STEM Adventurers to be inspired into STEM careers in the future. We aim through our festival to sow the seeds early and help parents and teachers alike to nurture the inspiration.
