WHAT IS GET UP TO SPEED WITH STEM?

Get up to Speed with STEM is a live, annual, one-day showcase event which aims to introduce, inform and inspire students, parents and teachers about the world of work in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing (STEM) sectors.

It’s a superb, highly interactive careers showcase which, for over ten years, has promoted STEM-related career opportunities to over 34,000 young people, educators and families from across the Sheffield City Region and beyond.

Each event sees Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham filled with fun and interactive exhibits from both local and national employers, to showcase their businesses, their industries and their employment opportunties.

For the last two years, we’ve also introduced The Virtual Experience on our online platform, giving students the opportunity to discover more about the world of work with virtual factory tours, inspiring individual careers stories and much more!
