“I would like to personally thank all sponsors, exhibitors, the Metro Mayor, supporters, judges and volunteers; the day could not be possible without this amazing collaboration of people who all want to inspire the next generation of skills experts, together. The ripples from this event are already starting as schools are enquiring about other schemes they can get involved with and new businesses want to help us shine the spotlight on our fantastic region.” Michelle Dow, Managing Director, All About STEM.
