STEM is the collective term used to describe Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
By championing the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics activities that engage, challenge, inform and inspire the young people of Scotland, it will contribute to the nation having a STEM-rich knowledge economy and being recognised as a STEM-literate society. Our Mission at TechFest
Every child in Scotland should have the chance to experience the fun and excitement of STEM, whilst building knowledge and skills essential for life and work in the future.
Developing their STEM understanding and capabilities allows young people to become confident in using Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in their everyday lives, as well as in whatever career they choose to pursue. TechFest aims to provide opportunities and experiences for children and young people to build on and improve these vital skills.
