North Star Science School is an amazing one-day live event for school children in years 8 and 9. The vision is to combine science with curiosity and play to stimulate and inspire the next generation to consider the fascinating range of careers in STEAM subjects.

We do this by showcasing the cutting edge of science and engineering and promoting innovation and opportunity in the South Yorkshire region. So far, North Star events have reached over 2,500 young people from across South Yorkshire.

On 23 November 2022 the third North Star live event will be held at the amazing Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park Resort in Rotherham. In a blended programme, the day will include inspirational talks from leading scientists and engineers, and students will engage in fun, creative activities, experiments and hands-on interactive workshops delivered by our partners.

Professor Brian Cox, Britain’s leading physicist and science communicator will be in virtual attendance, opening the event and talking about the wonders of the universe. There is also an opportunity for parents and carers of the participating students to attend an innovative evening event which will look to bring them together with local businesses offering opportunities for young people.

WHY SOUTH YORKSHIRE?

South Yorkshire has a proud industrial heritage built from the power of STEAM. Inventions and improvement in manufacturing processes in the region played a key role in the industrial revolution which transformed the world. Rotherham is once again the home of world-class manufacturing with The Advanced Manufacturing Park developed by Harworth and the wider South Yorkshire Innovation District leading the way.

It is THE place in the UK for people to connect, co-locate, collaborate and innovate; attracting business and investment from all over the world. This year, we have five schools working in partnership with sponsors to co-create workshops as part of a year-round programme.
