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.

Frozen Kingdom

Survival night- An evening of team building, developing communication skills and surviving the trials that lay before them. Arctic survival scenarios including tent building, blizzard scenario, fire starting and harpooning animals to survive. Making nettle soup and planning an expedition balancing carbohydrates, fats and protein in relation to the out-going calories burned whilst on the expedition- all attempted it, but not many survived!

Night came to a climax sitting around the camp fire singing songs and retelling of their adventures. What a night!
