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 Bletchley Park Museum

Yr 10 and 11 IT students

Bletchley Park, once the top-secret home of the World War Two Codebreakers is now a vibrant heritage attraction.

Year 10 and 11 IT students will visit The Tunny and Colossus galleries to better understand the reason for building one of the world's first computers, including seeing the 1944 Colossus Mk II working rebuild. The group will visit the First Generation Gallery and see the working WITCH computer and the EDSAC reconstruction. Students will then have the chance to take part in two workshops; the first programming the game Snake on BBC Micros and then hacking it, the second creating their own version of Siri based on the Turing Test.
