STEM Clubs

Increased level of FREE support available for your Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) departments

As you know, the Institute of Education has been providing free advice and support to local schools for enrichment activities in the STEM curriculum areas since 2008. We can also offer free support for schools to establish STEM Clubs (and for those with existing clubs, looking for fresh ideas or new challenges).

The overall aims of running a STEM club are to:

  • Bring a real world context to STEM subjects
  • Encourage STEM ambassador involvement within STEM clubs, thus raising young people’s awareness of STEM careers, inspiring them to continue with STEM subjects
  • Deliver support and guidance for teachers, both when setting up clubs, and on-going support for existing clubs

Why not contact the STEM Team to arrange a visit to your school to discuss how we can tailor the support available to suit your circumstances. Or for further information about any of the STEM support services available to schools, please contact us at or telephone 01905 542576.
