STEMsocial Conference

An educational and interactive event for A-Level and GCSE students, connecting them with organisations that value STEM. STEMsocial hopes to inspire and influence the values, interests and lifestyles of young people for generations with inspirational guest speakers, and awesome workshops and exhibitions. 

Our first STEMsocial Conference held in Leicester, November 2016, attracted 500 attendees, with presenters from GSK, Google, NHS, O2 and IET among others.

The content of the educational conference is deliberately designed to bridge the gap between STEM industry and education, by going beyond the classroom and introducing advocates of STEM. People like Ruth Amos, who invented the StairSteady as a GCSE project and became 2006 Young Engineer of the Year. Stories which will make the attendees believe in themselves and willing to take a chance/pursue a career within STEM.


The conference empowers and ENRICHES students by giving access to: 

  • Elite industry guest speakers delivering thought-provoking presentations
  • Panelists and use of social media to join in the discussion
  • Interactive workshops and exhibitors from the field of STEM
  • Universities and career support organisations to examine career paths
  • Online seminars post conference on writing job applications and interview techniques


The Event is a great and from what I saw on the day it was greatly received by both guests and the students. I sat in the audience and found it very interesting and educational. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reach out and put to bed some of myths of choosing a career using STEM

The event was very beneficial to our Brand and provided great insight and networking opportunity into STEM careers for the delegates. A great addition to the conference was the finely detailed management and hospitality provided by the host (BeScience). As a company we were also inspired by the diversity on the expert panel and the learning opportunity provided by Google’s Digital Garage. In summary the event was a pleasure to attend and we aim to make a return next year.
