Innovating for the Future

STEMtastic21 is an innovative virtual celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. In March 2021, watch some of the world's leading scientists, engineers and innovators talking about their work and join in with STEM workshops and activities.

Sign up to join us from 5 to 14 March

We are delighted to bring you STEMtastic21, our second virtual Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) event, running from Friday 5 to Sunday 14 March 2021.

Timed to coincide with British Science Week 2021 the theme is Innovating for the Future and we believe that an essential part of that is inspiring everyone to engage with STEM, regardless of age, ability, or, in this virtual world, geographical location!

Register below and come along and join us. It’s totally free and we really do promise there will be something for everyone - a true festival of STEM!


We're proud to be welcoming


CERN's main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research – as a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN through international collaborations. The main site at Meyrin hosts a large computing facility, which is primarily used to store and analyse data from experiments, as well as simulate events. Researchers need remote access to these facilities, so the lab has historically been a major wide area network hub. CERN is also the birthplace of the World Wide Web.

The UK’s nuclear industry is facing its biggest challenge in decades. Existing power stations near the end of their working lives are ready to be decommissioned, while a new wave of plants has been given the go ahead. Nuclear is back on the agenda.

Engineers, scientists, business minds, talented managers and financial experts will all be essential to the future of this sector. That’s why leading businesses and organisations have come together to create a new graduate training programme, nucleargraduates.

OR in Education (ORiE) is one of The OR Society’s outreach programmes. We work with teachers, lecturers, STEM organisations and volunteers to promote OR and raise awareness of the importance of its real-world applications and career potential to students.

“It is our mission is to make sure every student knows what operational research is!”

Our outreach activities include:

  • free downloadable resources
  • school and college visits
  • careers and science fairs
  • interactive activities and workshops
