STEM – Engineering

OVERVIEW & AIMS

Our STEM Engineering Workshop introduces the basics of engineering and includes some robotics. We don’t aim to transform students into skilled engineers; what we aim to do is make engineering an accessible and exciting career choice for everyone.

This workshop can be delivered as a full day, half day repeated, or carousel, utilising multiple classrooms. Most of the workshop involve practical activities as ‘doing’ is often the best way learn.

We like to dispel the misconception that engineering is a career that is exclusive for men and show many examples of female engineers. With such rapid technological changes taking place, it is sobering to reflect that students who pursue a career in engineering will be studying for technologies that probably don’t yet exist!

STEM – Engineering is a fun and energetic workshop that is suitable for all students.
We can accommodate full year group delivery providing your school has a sufficiently large venue.

IN THIS PROGRAMME, YOUR STUDENTS WILL:

• Develop team working and problem solving skills
• Learn about engineering and the role of an engineer
• Gain a better understanding of how many opportunities there are in engineering

What Students say...

I remember ‘Plan, Do, Review’. This was fun day, I liked the variety. I didn’t think I would enjoy this day but it was actually really interesting.

What Teachers say...

Good insight into engineering. Our students seemed to really enjoy the day. Lots of content delivered in a fun way. I liked the resources and that they were not sat in the chairs all day. Some surprises where students that are normally difficult to engage, really got stuck in.
