2017 Festival Review

Aiming to inspire students to join careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, MK Innovates held a festival at centre:mk on July 7 & 8.

Young and older students alike came to speak to industry experts, who showed off their gadgets and gizmos, including robots, space rockets, the Mars Rover, augmented reality and a range of other interesting objects. 

The MK Innovates STEM festival was hailed a huge success and hundreds joined to celebrate the encouragement of young people getting involved in these prestigious careers.  

Opened by MP Iain Stewart, Mayor David Hopkins, High Sheriff Peter Kara and Women Leaders founder Jan Flawn CBE, the event included guests from University of Buckinghamshire, University of Bedfordshire, Niftylift, Evidence Talks, MK Dons SET, Arcadis, Open University and many more.
