School and Community based STEM Clubs
STEM Clubs are a powerful and enjoyable way to engage young people with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. STEM Learning has produced a handy step-by-step guide to setting up a STEM Club or building-up an existing one. With everything from finding volunteers to developing activities, this guide is full of useful information. You can access the STEM Clubs Guide here
The STEM Ambassador Hub can also offer support to help set up new school or community based STEM Clubs across the West Midlands (and give advice for organisations with existing clubs, looking for fresh ideas or new challenges). If you would like further information about what we can offer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01905 542576.
