TV star and Professor of Particle Physics, Brian Cox, will headline a science festival that is being held in Cumbria.
The Infinity Festival is a programme for secondary school students, which will be held in September at West Lakes Academy in Egremont.
More than 200 13-14 year old pupils will attend, and it's hoped the festival will inspire them to consider studying science, technology, engineering and maths.
We are absolutely delighted to be supporting the React Foundation, the festival’s organiser, who’ve brought experts in robots, insects, crime mapping, aircraft design, nuclear reactors and other areas to Cumbria and who do so much to inspire young people into STEM.
