Staffordshire’s annual Science Fair is returning to Perton Library on Saturday 11 May. 

Families can learn about climate change, robots, and astronomy at this free event, which takes place between 10am and 3pm. This year’s edition follows the success of the festivals held in 2022 and 2023. 

This family event is organised by Perton Library in collaboration with Wild About Perton and the County Council Digital Infrastructure Team. 

It’s part of Staffordshire’s Green Libraries Month, which is a series of events taking place throughout the county in May aimed at promoting sustainability. 

The event will include demonstrations from many groups and organisations based in and around the Staffordshire area. This includes the Waste Savvy Staffs, the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, and the Warwick University STEM Outreach Team. 

Stembotics Robot and Coding workshops will be held. 

The Staffordshire Police will also be present to demonstrate fingerprint science. Representatives from the Staffordshire Archives will be there to explain the science of photography. 

Lastly, the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue team will be there with a fire engine. 

Victoria Wilson, who is a Cabinet Member for Culture and Communities at Staffordshire County Council, stated that the event “is a great example of how important our libraries are for bringing communities together”.
