BeScience STEM will host it's inaugural conference, Titled #STEMSOCIAL, aimed at empowering and enriching A-level and GCSE students.BOOK NOW
The first STEM Conference in Leicester
The STEM Social Conference in Leicester is aimed at empowering and enriching A-Level and GCSE students, a tool to connect students to the STEM industry, inspire and introduce them to a youth-centric world of innovation. The content of the educational conference is deliberately designed to bridge the gap between the STEM industry and education, by going beyond the classroom and influence the values, interests and lifestyles of young people for generations. The conference will unveil the keys to success via our elite industry guest talkers, drawn from academia, and media, selected based on their intellectual contribution to demonstrate thought-provoking presentations.
The keynote speaker will inspire the audience with their captivating, yet relatable story. A nationally recognised STEM advocate, which will leave the attendees inspired to take a chance and believe in one self.
As well as being able to tweet the DJ music requests to keep everyone buzzing through-out the event, attendees also have the opportunity to use their social media to interact with the individuals on the panel and join in the discussion. This will enable them to get answers to questions immediately, making the experience more personalised and impactful for each student.
Exhibitors will be from organisations which directly relates to STEM or organisations which will aid in being a stepping stone to getting the students closer to their dream STEM career e.g. universities and career support organisations. Want to sponsor us? Click here
