SciFest 2015

The Black Country Skills Factory has once again joined forces with the University of Wolverhampton to sponsor SciFest 2015 and showcase High Value Manufacturing (HVM) to budding young engineers and their parents.

The annual science festival returns on Tuesday 7 July 2015 for a week-long celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) at the University’s City Campus in the centre of Wolverhampton.

Tailored for students of all ages including Primary, GCSE and Sixth Form students; the festival lets you take part in completely FREE workshops and events; see exciting special guest presentations; and attend specialised school-based days during the week.

Through science and technology workshops the Black Country Skills Factory will aim to demonstrate the exciting opportunities to be had through careers in HVM.

The Skills Factory will be showcasing the Manufacture your Future careers resources and latest version of the newly developed Quadrun app. The pros and cons of academic, vocational and apprenticeship career pathways will be communicated to young people and their parents.

A series of themed days will be on offer at the festival for school visits, as well as a free family day on Saturday 11 July. For more details about Scifest and to book onto events visit
