The third annual STEMtech conference and showcase will take place at The International Centre (TIC), Telford, on 13-14 June. Its theme will be ‘Skilled for Success’.
The event has previously been held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London.
The event aims to help young people develop valuable scientific skills for the future from educators from across the UK.
Event director Shirley Rhodes, said: “STEMtech encourages interaction with major industry partners to ensure young people develop the skills, experience, and motivation that STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) industries desperately require.
“With advances in technology transforming the STEM market, we are really looking forward to our keynote address from Muhammed Chaudhry of the Silicon Valley Education Foundation, who will be discussing how to increase and accelerate student achievement by leveraging technology at scale.”
Tom Gray, chief executive of Southwater Event Group, owners of TIC Telford, said: “STEMtech is a great addition to our event diary for 2016 and it’s sure to be a busy and interesting event with delegates visiting from across the UK.”
The event will include a teacher-focused CPD event for secondary teachers, a networking conference dinner, a primary fringe event dedicated to STEM in primary schools, and a ‘Skilled for Success’ conference and showcase.
