Empowering young people
to take control of their future
A three-day annual event designed to show how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) can make a difference in the real world. It inspires students and their families to consider the exciting opportunities that studying and working in STEM open up to them.
Now in its ninth year, the event was founded in 2010 by The Scarborough Business Ambassadors with huge support from Unison Ltd, Scarborough Borough Council and NYBEP Ltd, it was and is driven by the need to promote careers in engineering and the local progression routes available to improve recruitment in the sector.
For 2018, we are encouraging a greater presence of Science related activities. Science has always been very much part of the event and for 2018 we have proudly changed the name and logo to reflect this.
This year the event will feature as part of The Year in Engineering initiative set up by the government which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering. It also forms an important part of our Industrial Strategy which is committed to boosting engineering across the UK, ensuring everyone has the skills needed to thrive in a modern economy.
Empowering young people to take control of their future in an ever-changing world is essential for successful futures, especially as they progress to careers which do not yet exist, use technology not yet invented and solve problems we do not even yet know are problems. This is at the heart of Scarborough Science & Engineering Week (SSEW).
The event is not for profit and we rely on your support and commitment to bringing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to life for young people. Each year we take on board comments we receive to try to improve the event and ensure we are constantly improving.
We are pleased to announce for 2018 – Sirius Minerals and the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP as our continued Headline Sponsors, and Venue Sponsor – Scarborough Spa, and Transportation Sponsor – North Yorkshire County Council.
Next event 9th – 11th October 2018.
