North Star Event
Creating an exciting future narrative for South Yorkshire, promoting and celebrating innovation across the region.
Science Summer School Event
We will welcome 400 specifically selected students from across Rotherham and Sheffield, inspiring them through a programme showcasing the cutting edge of science and engineering and exposing them to the fascinating range of opportunities which a career in STEAM can offer.
Throughout the day, the young people will attend a varied programme which will include inspirational talks from leading scientists and engineers and then attending interactive and creative workshops delivered by our partners.
Professor Cox will be with us for the whole of the event. He will give his own keynote lecture and attend those of speaker colleagues where possible and give a closing address at the end of the afternoon. In the evening, Professor Cox will host a reception for invited students, their parents and VIP guests.

The People’s Picture is a photography and design studio from British artist Helen Marshall. Every artwork is made up of thousands of photos yet every single one tells a story. As an artist-led studio practice we create innovative photo mosaic artworks and installations at the leading edge of design and technology.
Pictures are powerful. People connect with pictures. People share their memories, dreams and celebrate through pictures. We are experts in visual storytelling, digital photo mosaics and bringing communities together.
