This year the Swansea Science Festival is launching its very first Schools Programme designed to invigorate and inspire pupils nationwide by exploring the breath-taking world of innovation!

Pupils from both primary and secondary schools across Wales & beyond will receive an exciting resource pack containing a plethora of different activities to undertake to spark their interest and knowledge and become pioneers of science, and the best bit is that it’s all completely free! 

They will also have a chance to join a virtual workshop discussing their findings from the event with an appearance by some special guests! 

Join us as we nurture pupils’ curiosity and engagement with science! 

This year’s activities are specifically designed for year 5 & 6 pupils in primary schools and year 7 pupils in secondary schools.

An Added Bonus!  

As part of the Swansea Science Festival we are also very excited to be able to invite school classes to participate in this exciting partnership project between Swansea University and the Youth STEMM Award.  

The Youth STEMM Award (YSA) is a skills award to support and inspire the next generation into STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine). The YSA provides a framework to add impact and greater legacy to stand alone STEMM outreach activities while building confidence and a sense of achievement.   

We are thrilled to be able to offer a fully funded membership for one year to 5 schools that register as part of the Swansea Science Festival’s Schools Programme (on a first come first served basis). The Swansea Science Festival sessions, along with other outreach projects that the University hosts throughout the year will provide additional support to help your students complete their award.  

Please find below a video that outlines the benefits of signing up to this scheme.

We will be hosting an information session on how this award works on 6 October at 4.30pm. If you’d like to join this please register your interest here.

Please note that this awards scheme is available to secondary school pupils (Year 7) only.
