STEAM FAIR 2022 inspires the next generation of innovators, creators and problem solvers

Primary school children from across the county attended Wiltshire Councils' Learning Resources Hub STEAM FAIR 2022, an event designed to inspire the next generation of innovators, creators and problem solvers.

Published 8 November 2022

The STEAM FAIR held at County Hall on 8 November 2022, was attended by 1,200 pupils and support staff, who enjoyed the opportunity to explore a wide variety of stands and exhibits from external providers and be inspired by curriculum-linked STEAM activities.

The event, organised by Wiltshire Council's Learning Resources Hub, was supported by Swindon and Wiltshire Careers Hub and The James Dyson Foundation and followed two previous hugely successful STEAM Fairs held in 2018 and 2020.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said; "Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) influences nearly every part of our daily lives and is an area of industry set to grow rapidly in the future.  Within this developing environment, where robotics, artificial intelligence and virtual reality will be the new reality, it is essential that more pupils, from a very young age, engage with and are excited by STEAM.

"This event supports Wiltshire Council's commitment to ensuring that all young people get the best start in life but also our commitment to ensuring Wiltshire has a thriving local economy supported by a skilled workforce. I hope that the children and the teachers that attended the event had fun and were inspired by the possibilities and opportunities that studying science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics one up to them."
