Austin celebrates Black Country science festival

Dudley MP Ian Austin has met local schools at the University of Wolverhampton's SciFest science festival.

Dudley MP Ian Austin met local schools at the University of Wolverhampton’s SciFest science festival on Friday at the University’s City Campus.

The week-long festival was established three years ago to show pupils and their families the wonders of science and engineering.

This year’s festival is taking place between 1 and 5 July with local school groups of all ages visiting the university and a free family day at the University’s City Campus on Saturday 5 July.

Austin hopes that the festival will inspire a new generation to get involved with science and technology.

Ian Austin said:

“SciFest is a great opportunity for young students to see inspiring examples of science and engineering in action.

“Education and skills has to be our number one priority in the Black Country, so I want more inspirational science and technology teaching like this to inspire a new generation that brings new jobs and new industries to the region.”
