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.

Visit to the University of Sheffield Virtual & Augmented Reality Lab

For our Sixth Form IT students.

The University of Sheffield's Virtual & Augmented Reality (VAR) laboratory in the Diamond has a suite of facilities geared towards VAR experiences that demonstrates the capabilities of this amazing technology.

This masterclass for Sixth Formers is a hands-on experience - using computers to do something really  exciting. Students will build a 3D world in virtual reality, as well as have a tour of the Computer Science Department and an opportunity to talk to tutors.
