STEM Outreach

The Faculty of Science and Engineering is heavily involved in delivering STEM sessions to varying age ranges.


The Faculty of Science and Engineering STEM Outreach programme aims to offer school and college students opportunity to see what ‘real’ engineers and scientists do through practical applications and problem solving activities in Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Computational Science.

Activities are designed to inspire young people and raise awareness of higher level study and future career opportunities in STEM whilst offering curriculum enhancement and enrichment. The aim is to target students early enough to influence subject choices and also to widen access to groups who are under-represented in STEM subjects to address future skills needs, for example, by encouraging more girls into engineering.
