Workshop

STEM Workshops

Connect learning from Science, Design and Technology, Engineering and Maths and to careers across STEM.

STEM Workshops

Workshops are designed to engage students in STEM and allow them to contextualise what they're learning across all other subjects. The sessions are about ensuring all children gain the right skills and experience to raise their aspirations across STEM.

Whatever your needs and focus across your school the sessions can be tailored to address this. The workshops can offer you routes focused on raising attainment and progress of all students including those with SEND.

Sessions are fun and can engage students which can result in improving students attendance and also contribute to improving the mental health and emotional wellbeing.
