This event is for year 8 students in the wider Bristol region, who will be selecting their subjects to study in the following academic year, in an attempt to build interest in STEM subjects.

Companies and volunteers supporting the event will be asked to run a stall in the main hall. Promoting your business, informing our visitors on  routes into engineering , work experience opportunities and the types of job roles available. We will be demonstrating resources to help engage students with the type of practical activities they will encounter in the next phase of their learning and we need volunteers to put this in context.
