John Barber, CEO of the Work-wise Foundation and chairman of the Get up to Speed steering group, said: “This event is made possible by the support of local businesses, and, in particular, our headline sponsors.

"They have backed us for many years, and it is fantastic to consistently receive such strong support from some of the
region’s most respected manufacturers.

"This year we will be showcasing what local pupils, apprentices and employers have achieved by working together and being part of Get up to Speed with STEM over the past 10 years.”

This year’s free event will highlight robotics and renewables, feature 10 zones to mark 10 years and include presentations by previous visitors who have gone on to secure a career in STEM-related industries.
