STEM Events Series

What is STEM?

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of other occupations, creating over 14 million jobs between now and 2023.

The top most well-paid graduate jobs are in the STEM industry. And yet uptake of STEM subjects at A-level and university nationally remains low and male-dominated, with only 12% of students studying STEM subjects at university being women and only 3% of them entering a STEM-based career. 

Through a programme of  STEM activities delivered through lessons, activities, trips, lectures and competitions, students throughout the entire school, from nursery to A-level, have the opportunity to be inspired and to learn more about these subjects and careers they lead to.

Our STEM events are ever-evolving and ever-changing,  see below a full list and check back regularly for updates.

Moon Zoom

During the second part of the Autumn Term, pupils will be learning about the solar system and looking at the plants associated with our solar system.

Pupils will watch video clips from NASA and learn how astronauts adapt to life on board the space station e.g how they wash their hair and eat meals in space. The children will making balloon powered rockets and discussing whether the balloons travelled at the same speed and travelled the same distance. Having fun and exciting STEM activities available to our students at such, an early stage in their education will encourage children to take a more active interest in these areas as they grow.
