We strive to encourage and highlight what’s new, unusual or surprising;

to inspire by giving participants the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience;

and to enhance interest by providing examples and introductions to role models.

Learning through play

Encourage learning through hands-on play

Our visiting STEM Adventurers experience the festival through interaction and exploration into the realms of STEM.
Exhibitors are encouraged to offer hands-on demonstrations and experiments of their specific sectors and engage with young minds to inspire them through play. Adults alike can reap the rewards too.
