There are just a few weeks left to enter the 2024 Wales STEM Awards with entries closing on 12th July.

The 2024 Wales STEM Awards will shine a spotlight on the organisations and individuals making a difference to the STEM agenda in Wales.

The awards celebrate those leading the sector in Wales, those businesses creating an impact on the Welsh economy, those addressing the STEM diversity gap and skills shortage, and those inspiring and raising aspirations of the next generation.

The 2024 ceremony will take place on 17th October at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff.

There are fifteen categories to enter, including Innovation in STEM, STEM Educational Programme of the Year, STEM Woman of the Year and STEM Company of the Year.

Co-founder of the awards Liz Brookes, said: “There’s just a few weeks left to get entries in for the 2024 Wales STEM Awards. The awards are open to organisations in both the public, private and not-for-profit sectors and there are categories to celebrate both individuals making an impact, and organisations as a whole. We know there’s some amazing stuff happening across Wales which we’re looking forward to recognising and celebrating.”
