South West STEM Fest

South West STEM Fest is underway! A three week virtual programme of STEM activities designed to educate and inspire young people across our region. Spaces are still available on live sessions throughout the festival, so download the programme and get booking!

The South West STEM Fest organisers – STEM Ambassador Hubs South West Peninsula and West England – have been blown away by the response from employers, organisations and STEM Ambassadors. There is something here for everyone across all ages and for parents and carers too. The content is broad and varied, some sessions will be practical and require resources to be downloaded, others are presentation style. We also have science shows and careers focused workshops. Most sessions will be delivered live via Zoom or Teams with the option for questions through the chat function.

How to book

To find out more about each session, click the link in the session description in the programme and you will be taken to the full details within Eventbrite.

From this page you will be able to book, and a meeting link will be sent to you once you’re registered. We strongly recommend adding the meeting links to your online calendars and ensuring that you have them to hand and ready to use on the day.

You can attend as many sessions as you want. We have made it clear what age range the session is intended for and made reference to curriculum links for teachers wishing to join a session with their class.

Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and we expect them to be popular! Each session can accommodate 300 individuals unless otherwise indicated.

Joining a live session

On the device you are using to share the session with your class, simply click the link which was emailed to you upon registration or manually enter the Meeting ID and password. You will join a waiting area until the start time. As soon as the session starts your speaker will be visible on your screen.

For teachers using a screen at the front of the class please make sure students can see the screen clearly and note any special instructions for the session, as some presentations will involve audience participation.

Please note that each session will be recorded

Meeting settings have been set up to ensure that all participants have their cameras and mics switched OFF
