Science and Technology in Parliament

During my time Parliament, after constituency work, one of my key focuses has been the promotion of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in all its guises across Parliament.

I sit on the Science and Technology Select Committee every week - scrutinising Government policy and carrying out inquiries into quantum technologies, fusion energy, nuclear energy, artificial intelligence and the list goes on.

I also chair the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee which publishes ‘Science in Parliament’ - a quarterly magazine - and I co-chair the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence.

I am a big advocate of increasing participation in STEM and, to this end, sponsor The Big Bang Competition and The Big Bang Fair in Parliament each year.
