During last school summer holidays 32 students from across the North East took part in amazing projects working with some of the region’s leading Higher Education Institutions and organisations at the forefront of STEM. Having succeeded against stiff competition, the students received funding from the Nuffield Foundation Bursaries Programme (coordinated in the North East by Newcastle College STEM Outreach).
On March 2nd I supported an 'Its not Rocket Science' teacher day for Lancashire Primary teachers.
The day consisted of science co-ordinators from 11 schools across Lancashire having a day of hands on mini-workshops delivered by STEM Ambassadors, a session in a mobile science lab getting involved in kitchen chemistry activities, support and advice on running STEM Clubs and linking to their secondary schools, plus a planning session to allow them to develop their own action plans for integrating STEM activities across the curriculum in their own schools.
