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.

Maths Inspiration Day

For Y12 Mathematicians

A national programme of interactive maths lecture shows for teenagers, Maths Inspiration is a chance to for our Year 12 mathematicians to experience the UK's most inspiring maths speakers live in theatres - presenting mathematics in the context of exciting, real-world applications.

The shows feature mathematicians, engineers and statisticians, so this is a great opportunity for our students to explore careers they may not have considered before.
