Last year’s festival

Saturday 1 October 2016 saw the doors of the Allia Future Business Centre opened to host the first ever Peterborough STEM festival. The organisers’ mission was to provide a day of fun activities to celebrate and to experience the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – a free to attend event, designed especially for families and young people.

This year they are back – bigger and better than before!

PeterboroughSTEMFest2016_IMG_9307_webThis October they will have some amazing hands-on science from the CHAoS Science Roadshow team, where you can get interactive with fun science experiments for children and adults of all ages.

Additionally, they are partnering with Peterborough Raspberry Pi Jam to bring some cool Minecraft coding and building challenges on the Raspberry Pi, so be sure to book a session as these proved very popular last year.

There will also be engineering challenges, robotics, forensics, retro gaming, virtual reality, as well as puzzles with Mathematician @TomRocksMaths.

Tickets are FREE and will be released nearer to the date. Be sure to subscribe to the festival mailing list on the website to be the first to hear when tickets are available and get the latest updates. You can also follow them on Twitter @PboroSTEMFest and find them on Facebook.
