STEM Clubs are out-of-timetable sessions that provide young people with the chance to explore aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) in less formal settings. They aim to enrich, rather than deliver, the curriculum. Clubs are an important outlet to ignite new interest or raise attainment in STEM subjects through more imaginative and inventive teaching methods.
As your STEM Club Champion we are here to help deliver free CPD workshops; face-to-face and remotely to all state-maintained secondary schools and FE colleges to sustain and grow their own clubs, as well as offering additional support to start STEM Clubs for young people.
Courses are being run remotely for anyone who wants to set up an Online Club, these are free and take place through an online community group. More details are available here
