  • Available in Welsh

Spring Into STEM is our first online event that highlights careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) with input from a range of different disciplines across the University.

Between 6 and 8 July 2021, we will be running a series of panels, workshops and discussions.

During the school day, there will be up to five sessions, aimed at demonstrating the career pathways that have their foundations in STEM subjects.

After school, there will be sessions for teachers and educators which will aim to inform, provide discussion and offer support.

This event is open to any students that are interested or studying STEM subjects at university.

The content will be provided bilingually in Welsh and English and there will be access to recordings and additional resources after registration.
