Get involved

Crawley STEMfest is an opportunity not only for students to experience some of the latest innovations and to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) but for their teachers to forge links with the STEM community.

It is an exciting and challenging festival. It gets young people engaged by making STEM subjects fun and relevant. It nurtures their capacity for ‘thinking outside the box’ and becoming truly innovative. There are a series of events each year – please see the What’s On section for more details.


We are grateful for the support of our current sponsors, including headline sponsor Gatwick Airport Ltd. If you would like to support this valuable work in engaging young people across the South East in STEM activities, please see the sponsor page.
