- About Us -

- Anticipate Change -

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

We all see exponential changes across the world in scientific and technological fields, but how we react to those changes is what ultimately matters. 

This is the inspiration for the York Science Conference. To provide value and help other discover new passions by introducing broad themes within STEM. Guiding individuals to make informed decisions based on purpose and reason.


- 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!
