Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - STEM - are subject areas which provide excitement, interest, creativity and innovation in the school curriculum.
In this increasingly technological world where we are bombarded with scientific and technical information, all students benefit from being able to analyse data and understand the complexities of real-world STEM applications. We want to show students the excitement, opportunities and roles for them in this world, to make sure they are equipped and ready for the future challenges ahead so crucially reliant on an understanding and application of the STEM skills.
Through the work of our STEM Outreach Coordinator Sue Harris, we have cutting-edge investigative projects running where students are working with university research groups undertaking real research.
For all students, staff and our partner schools, we also organise regular seminars entitled Meet the Scientist, which enable us to hear from leading STEM experts and pose them questions.
This interaction is exciting and is just one of the many innovative approaches we are taking to bring the integrated nature of the STEM skillset into the classroom and across our students’ wavelength.
