ONE Haverhill Partnership is delighted to host the very first Haverhill Science Festival. The primary aims of the festival are to promote the study of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics in schools; boost the educational aspirations of local students in Haverhill and promote training opportunities in high-tech industry.
