GET UP TO SPEED with STEM  (held at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham) offers young people a chance to see some of the UK's most exciting science, technology & engineering inventions, and meet the people who design, build and operate them! Get involved with the interactive displays and activities, and speak to businesses, inventors, apprentices and education providers about the future of these industries at this showcase event - all free of charge!

Our volunteer members from the Yorkshire Region support this event every year, with activities to help inspire the next generation of budding engineers.
