The event will also have two shows from the Royal Institution, an independent science charity, for students, and will also have an appearance from Codey Rockey, a robot that allows primary-age children to learn about programming through play.
Students will see how STEM can look for them now as well as in the future, capturing technologies that will change our world and how we see it.

Beverly Maloney, founder of STEMFest and D&T teacher at RHS, said: “STEMFest is a fantastic opportunity for students ranging from years 5–13 to come together and see what STEM has to offer, engaging in interactive displays and embedding some of the learning that is going on in schools in the local area.
“Students will see how STEM can look for them now as well as in the future, capturing technologies that will change our world and how we see it.”
