In Autumn 2012 the University will co-host the first Bradford Science Festival.
The festival will take place across the city, with thousands of school pupils from across the district coming in to experience hands-on workshops. This follows last year’s successful hosting of the British Science Festival, which saw interest in STEM subjects rise in pupils at schools all over Bradford. By staging an annual festival, it is hoped that this enthusiasm can be sustained and more pupils from Bradford schools will go on to train and enter the highly-valued STEM workforce.
We are currently making plans for our contribution to the festival as part of the University’s output. Keep checking for updates and announcements!
