"Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths are crucial subjects for young people to get to grips with, as the future of our local and global industries depends on these advanced skills.

"It’s fantastic that so many young people from across the North West visit us especially for the Burnley College Science Festival and we look forward to an event that’s bigger and better than ever.”
