Simon Jordan, Deputy Principal of Burnley College, said:

The Burnley College Science and Technology Festival has become a highlight in the local calendar and attracts crowds from across East Lancashire. We’re excited to be hosting this awesome festival once again, with even more activities and attractions to appeal to all ages.

“Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths are crucial subjects for young people to embrace, as the future of our local and global industries depends on these Advanced skills. Last year, our students achieved the college’s highest ever grades in these important STEM subjects and our tutors are proud to be passing on their passion and expertise.

“It’s fantastic that, through the Science and Technology Festival, we can introduce new generations of students to the fascinating world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, leading to a fascinating journey of discovery and possibly a life-long passion for these subjects.

“The 2018 Science and Technology Festival is going to be bigger and better than ever and we’re looking forward to welcoming as many families as possible for a day of exciting discoveries.”
