A day of inspiration and wonder to celebrate the best of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM)...

North Star Science School is returning to South Yorkshire on 24th November 2021.

This years event, led by The Work-wise Foundation, will be held at Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park Resort in Rotherham.

"Showing future engineers and scientist the exciting world of STEM is vital if we are to solve the current problems humanity is facing. We need to be encouraging more young people, particularly women into this field if we want diverse solutions to global problems."
Ruth Amos

The North Star programme promotes innovation and opportunity in the South Yorkshire region to inspire the next generation to consider careers in STEAM subjects. We back a vision for the UK to become the best place in world to practice Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths, and believe that inspired communities can chart their own path to health, wealth and happiness. 

We want to connect our young people to inspirational people and places which will spark their imaginations and help them see the great opportunities in STEAM in the UK.

What can I expect to see at North Star 2021?

We will be inviting students in years 8 and 9 from across the South Yorkshire region to travel to Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park Resort for the day on 24th November 2021. 

The jam-packed day will be opened by Professor Brian Cox who will deliver an inspiring speech to the students. 

Students will then be split into smaller groups and rotate around a series of employer-led workshops and talks from industry experts.

The event organisers are keen to speak with any businesses who may be interested in supporting the event – if you think this is something you or your business may be interested in, please get in touch.
