The Global STEM Festival (GSF) is an opportunity for 5-18 year olds to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) virtually.
Following on last year's successful programme, this year the GSF looks at "creating real life solutions for real life problems". This will be achieved by focusing on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and how they apply to our everyday life as well as on global capacity. The festival this year looks to equip participants with STEM skills to understand these problems, find sustainable solutions and consider their applications in real life. This will allow for exploration of the natural and created world around us, and further develop important skills, including critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, research and analytical skills.
