Coastal STEMfest November 2015 - May 2016

Coastal STEMfest aims to enthuse the next generation to study and build careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), and to develop the tools and techniques needed to drive the economy of the future. It is promoted by a partnership of the Sussex Learning Network, Tomorrow’s Engineers, Coastal West Sussex Partnership, Coast 2 Capital LEP and STEM Sussex, the STEM outreach department at the University of Brighton.


Coastal STEMfest Business Meeting


55 STEM businesses attended the Coastal STEMfest Launch meeting in November 2015, here they learned about the aims of programme, the opportunities to get involved and how they as local industry could shape the direction of the project.

Please see the presentation from the evening.  




Your Future Careers Day


In February a Your Future Careers Day was held on Worthing Pier in conjunction with the Sussex Chamber of Commerce. 230 students from 7 schools attended the event which included careers talks from local STEM Ambassadors, a fast-paced speed networking activity and the sub regional heats for the National Science & Engineering Competition. Cluster members including Elekta and Rayner supported the event.



Teacher Employer Network Evening


This event brought together senior leaders from business and education to work together to embed enterprise skills in the school curriculum, ensuring that young people have the skills they need to equip them for the world of work  as well as giving them an enhanced capacity to generate ideas.

This event capitalised on the positive work of the Enterprise Adviser Pilot which is being delivered throughout Coast to Capital.  


For more information on the C2C Enterprise Advisor Pilot please visit the C2C website.


In School Activities


In school activities were delivered at schools across West Sussex. Details of these activities can be found here.

To bring Coastal STEMfest to life, the project needs local businesses and business leaders to get involved and help enthuse young people. Could your business help by providing site visits for groups of secondary school pupils?
