- About Us -

- Anticipate Change -

Generalist science-themed events are rare in the UK, even more so at the university level.


With advances in science and technology occurring all the time, we want to cut through the noise and find out how they will impact you, society, the economy and beyond.

Understanding the changes happening to the world from a scientific perspective will enable our delegates and members to make more informed decisions about their pursuits.


- Discovery Series -

We are more than a one-day event. We provide opportunities for students throughout the academic year.

This is accomplished through our Discovery Series, which explores recent trends and niche topics which interest many students.

These are short demonstrations, panel debates, and workshops aimed at educating students about recent topics.

Check out our highlights below!

- Who are we? -

We are motivated undergraduates studying at the University of York having represented over nine academic departments. Our committee has had students from Chemistry to Law, providing us with the diversity of thought required to make our organisation successful.

We are professional and fun, with a mission that unites us - exploring new developments in science and technology from an academic and corporate perspective. You can be sure to find us in the Library cramming, out in York, and definitely in lectures!

 2020/21 Committee 

The York Science Conference inspires the next generation of scientists, engineers, and professionals to explore new and the cutting edge within STEM. As industries are continually disrupted and evolving, it is important to analyse the facts and trends that will define existing and emerging competitive spaces. Having been students at the University of York, we recognise the potential that will exist for the foreseeable future - on campus, and in the wider Yorkshire and Humber region.
