What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for Science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

STEM club will run every Wednesday from 2.45pm till 3.45pm starting on 14 September 2016 in SC01, for Years 8 and 9. Students are encouraged to see Mrs Taylor, Mrs Swift or Mrs Watson for further details. There will continue to be a weekly science club for Year 7 students.

Starting this year we will have a series of STEM lectures during curriculum time for KS4 students. This begins on 19 September 2016 with Professor Peter Buss from Manchester University giving a talk on 2D materials, polymers and graphene.

Further details for the academic year 2016/17 will be updated on this web page in due course. Students who are interested are encouraged to speak with Miss Guilfoyle, Curriculum Leader of Science for more details.
