STEM

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

What is it?

Promotes careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics using diverse and engaging activities across all key stages
Why is this important?
Over the next 20 years 62% of all new jobs created in the UK will be STEM related, and we currently have a skills shortage.
These jobs are essential to keep the UK competitive within global markets.
STEM graduates will earn on average £250 000 more than non-graduates over their lifetime.

In Partnership

What we offer:

Activities across all key stages including:

Throughout the academic year we provide a wide range of STEM related activities which our students can become involved in.
We also have a weekly STEM related form time fact sheet and computer screen saver we send out to all students and staff to promote and raise awareness of STEM related activities.
Dr Shaw within the science department is happy to speak to any parent/carer or student who wishes to get more involved in STEM related activities.

How you can help at home:

Use STEM career activity packs for parents/carers (e.g. futuremorph.org).
