This year’s event was a huge success!
The 3rd Annual STEMtech Conference and Showcase – Skilled for Success, took place at Telford International Centre for the first time, on 13th & 14th June. As well as a Conference & Showcase, the event hosted a Networking Dinner which included some fantastic presentations and networking opportunities. Attendees joined us from education and industry and it was great to see the development of so many new relationships.
The Conference & Showcase opened with a number of fantastic keynote addresses, which set the tone for a day full of learning and discussion. The day included a number of inspiring and thought provoking keynote addresses, personalised hands-on workshops and demo’s, which met the aim of supporting the development and advancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths education and careers.
As the only event to bring together STEM professionals from education, industry and policy makers, we celebrated, recognised and helped drive innovative and integrated approaches to STEM teaching and learning. Our speakers and exhibitors worked with our delegates to aid them in ensuring our young people are developing the skills, experience and motivation needed for the future.
Our Big Debate was an interesting and stimulating opportunity to hear from major industry partners. We learnt about their experiences and thoughts on tackling the growing STEM skills gap, why the gap has developed, and potential solutions. The debate confirmed the need for education, industry and policy makers to work closely with each other as well as provided potential solutions to tackle the issue.
We would like to thank all our delegates, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors for being involved and we hope you had an excellent day.
