Entries to all competitions will be regarded highly if they fit the theme and this year we are building the festival around the theme of

No Barriers – Future Possibilities…

What does this mean?

Think of the many ways that the human race has overcome barriers to date and then imagine the future possibilities; planes and spacecraft have taken us into the skies and beyond, both modern and ancient medicines have tackled deadly diseases, overcome disabilities and improved our quality of life. Where will such things as robotics take us into the future?

We will be placing a strong focus on advancements in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) disciplines, and the way they have developed and interrelate with our lives to open up future possibilities and break down the barriers we face. For children and teens, we are highlighting the fun in learning in areas such as robotics, coding, engineering and animation.
