University of Wolverhampton - SciFest

SciFest is an annual festival held at the University of Wolverhampton with the aim of increasing aspiration through fun interactive means in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Since 2012, we have provided school learners and the wider community with the largest science and engineering festival at any university in the West Midlands outside of the British Science Festival. SciFest brings together external partners from business, professional organisations, museums, engagement practitioners and staff from a variety of University Facilities to organise and deliver two days of immersive informal engagement in all aspects of STEM, health careers and the arts. This STEM festival encourages exploration and discovery of learning and careers through activity and consists of numerous drop-in activities housed in the courtyard discovery area and bookable activities in rooms around the University of Wolverhampton City Campus.

 

Who we are:  

The University of Wolverhampton has been providing students with the opportunities presented by a first-class education for over 180 years. With over 500 courses to choose from delivered across our 18 Schools and Institutes, the University of Wolverhampton's attractive offering to students from around the world includes 96% graduate employability (Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey 2015), teaching informed by world-leading research, strong business links, and state-of-the-art facilities.

The STEM Response Team is an award-winning outreach and public engagement team from the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) at the University of Wolverhampton. Its mission is to bring fantastic science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) activities to schools and the community spaces across the West Midlands and the country as a whole and address areas of particular need where aspirations may be low. From science shows in theatres, street entertainment, corporate events or workshops in classrooms the STEM response team can bring STEM to life in any venue.

Uni Connect brings together 29 partnerships of universities, colleges and other local partners to offer activities, advice and information on the benefits and realities of going to university or college. The programme was set up in 2017 to support the government’s social mobility goals to rapidly increase the number of young people from underrepresented groups going into higher education. Partnerships focus their work on local areas where higher education participation is lower than might be expected given the GCSE results of the young people who live there.

Aspire to HE is a partnership, led by the University of Wolverhampton with local schools and colleges, that are committed to improving access to higher education for everyone in the Black Country, and Telford and Wrekin. We provide impartial guidance and practical support to help people make informed and ambitious decisions about higher education and their future.
