STEM Club workshops
Local STEM Club Champions across England are delivering free CPD workshops for state-maintained secondary schools and FE colleges. Delivering CPD both face-to-face and remotely, they offer local support to your school to sustain and grow STEM-related clubs out-of-timetable for students. Lunch time, after school, weekend and holiday clubs enhance and enrich the curriculum. For further information contact STEMclubs@stem.org.uk.
to students, schools and themselves.
This workshop is for STEM Club leaders who have been running a club for a while and want to help their club to flourish into the foreseeable future. It looks at different ways of running a STEM Club, what a thriving and successful Club is like, how to maintain interest in the young people who attend, how to enhance the STEM experience and maximise the impact on the students attending the club whilst keeping running a club manageable in your workload.
STEM Clubs are proven to enrich pupil learning, understanding and enjoyment of STEM subjects, helping to improve skill sets through fun and creative extra-curricular sessions. The workshop explores best practice, ideas, opportunities, hints, tips and advice that will assist new and experienced primary school club leaders to maximise the benefits and impact a STEM Club can bring to pupils, the schools and to themselves.
Supported by the Gatsby Foundation, the workshops are part of the STEM Clubs expansion programme that enables us to remote and online support to grow STEM Clubs provision across England. This initiative will also help teachers to deliver the Gatsby Career Benchmarks by connecting STEM careers and providing opportunities to link with industry professionals and STEM Ambassadors.
