 ONGOING ’til MAY 2017  East Sussex

East Sussex STEAMfest is a vibrant celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM). A series of fascinating interactive activities, demonstrations, workshops and shows will be taking place in schools and colleges in East Sussex during April and May 2017, with the aim of inspiring the next generation to build careers in and with STEAM.

Last year’s festival culminated in a Big Bang @ The Hastings Centre. For 2017, we will kick off the festival with a Big Bang event in Eastbourne on April 19th.  For more information click here.

This fun event is renowned for engaging KS3 pupils in STEAM activities and challenging their perceptions about STEAM subjects. It will be a great trip out that will give students the opportunity to try interactive activities provided by local STEAM employers and organisations, and participate in a bookable show on the ugliest animals or attend some fantasic workshops.
