Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield
In collaboration with local schools, museums, industry and commerce
The Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering was a great success last year, which we are building upon in 2014. This year, National Science and Engineering Week in South Yorkshire will have a greatly enhanced programme for schools with over 200 talks offered.
Many of the speakers going into schools are STEM Ambassadors which means that they are part of a national voluntary scheme through which scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians go into schools and colleges to encourage young people to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
It is very pleasing that the range and diversity of talks and events reflects the very strong partnership that exists between our two universities.
