Three Counties Showground, WR13 6NW

A day showcasing creative science, technology, and entrepreneurship for middle and senior school students (Years 7 to 9) from around the region. Bring your class to listen to lectures, participate in hands-on workshops, and tour an extensive exhibition of organisations.

The event is free to attend, but schools and home-educating parents need to register in advance. Some activities will be timetabled specifically based on the size of school parties.

We outline the growing programme and list of exhibitors below, with more being added as confirmations come in. Find out how to exhibit and enthuse our region's students about science, technology, business and innovation. 

 


AdaLovelaceDay

Ada Lovelace Day

Occurring annually on the second Tuesday of October (i.e. this very day), Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.
