Festival in Milton Keynes to celebrate STEM subjects

A festival to celebrate and inspire careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is being held in Central Milton Keynes this summer.

Technology, manufacturing companies and educational establishments will be offering opportunities to interact with robots and augmented reality.

There will be competitions, prizes and much more, and it’s free to attend. It's being held in the year in which Milton Keynes celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Biztech founder member Elizabeth Sheldon, of Evidence Talks, told the technology forum’s recent annual meeting that her company is sponsoring three age-defined coding challenges with prizes. Candidates will participate in a two-day coding exercise resulting in a prize for the best in each category.

The MK Innovates STEM Festival is being held in Middleton Hall, Central Milton Keynes, in July. It is open to everyone and especially school children, undergraduates, post graduates and job-seekers.

Many of the city’s big names, including Milton Keynes Council, Cranfield University, Niftylift, the University of Buckingham, the National Energy Foundation, Nissan, the Open University, Milton Keynes College and Virtual Viewing.
