As part of the legacy of City of Culture 2013 the city and district will host a dedicated programme of activity for Science and Innovation.

As we all know when it comes to creating opportunities for economic growth in the future there are no more important areas than Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Whether it be computer scientists, technicians or engineers they all can transform our world. Industry, both locally and nationally, is crying out for people with STEM skills. Indeed, in today’s UK workforce, some 72 per cent of businesses rely on people with STEM skills and that figure is only likely to grow.

This programme is designed to enthuse our children, develop their awareness of the vast potential of STEM subjects and support our educators and business people to develop a positive environment in which STEM can flourish.
