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.
