The annual Scarborough Engineering Week is back for 2016 with more employers and hands-on activities than ever.

The three-day event is designed to show young people how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are so important in the real world.

It inspires students to consider the exciting opportunities that studying and working in STEM open up to them.

This is the biggest employer­led event, taking place at The Spa between 11 to 13 October, and is open to secondary and Post 16 schools/colleges on the 11 and 12.

The final day will play host to Primary Schools during the day. In addition the event will host the annual dinner on Wednesday 12 October and will be opening its doors to families on the evenings of Tuesday 11 October and Thursday 13 October, 4.30pm to 6:30pm.

The event is organised by Scarborough Business Ambassadors, coordinated by NYBEP Ltd, and receives support and sponsorship from York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership, North Yorkshire County Council, Sirius Minerals who are the Headline Sponsor, The Spa, venue sponsor and event host, HSBC, dinner sponsor and Scarborough Borough Council.
