Congratulations to everyone who won an award at the 2019 Schools' Competition, which took place on Friday 28 June 2019 at Anglia Ruskin University.
We are a key provider and coordinator of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education activities and support in Essex. These are for students at school and home, and are designed to both stimulate an interest in STEM and to open possible career paths.
We offer a full programme of events to promote STE(A)M. These include:
- Schools' Competition: an annual event at which students from local schools showcase their work and compete for prizes awarded by the judges.
- My Smarter Essex: an initiative to engage citizens in the design of a smarter future Essex, with the opportunity to meet with local companies.
- Imagine! STEM Club: out-of-school clubs, masterclasses, projects and competitions to enhance the learning with fun, practical activities.
Support for STEM activities
CSES actively promotes, enables and supports the provision of STEM in education, in partnership with other local and national organisations.
To this end, we have made available a bursary to support the start-up and growth of STEM clubs within schools.
If you would like to discuss STEM support in your school or at home, please contact us.
My Smarter Essex, Tue 15 Oct 2019 16:00-19:30, The College at Braintree
My Smarter Essex is returning to Braintree, with a second run of "The Internet: is it Good For Us?" which was last held at Anglia Ruskin University in November 2018. We are now taking bookings for this event.
We know that some students and schools were unable to make the previous event so this is an excellent opportunity to take part. The Braintree location is also intended to ease travel for schools based towards the north of Essex.
Sticking to the new format trialled previously, this session will interactively examine how data, connectivity and artificial intelligence will influence our health.
We have limited spaces for attendees and places must be booked in advance, please contact us to book. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Schools' Competition: Fri 28 June 2019, Marconi Building, Anglia Ruskin University

We look forward to seeing you in June.
CSES and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) hosted another successful Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Faraday Challenge on Wednesday 30 January 2019.
Teams of students from Hylands School, St John Payne, Chelmer Valley High School, Greensward Academy, Chelmsford County High School for Girls, The Gilberd School, Colchester Royal Grammar School, Felsted Preparatory School and King Edward VI Grammar School participated in this tough but exciting challenge.
As part of the build up to our centenary in 2020, CSES, in partnership with Essex County Council (ECC) and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), is launching an exciting new venture to support and encourage young people to consider the importance of science and technology in everyday life.
Imagine! STEM Club will start with a three-day workshop on 29-31 July 2019 in ARU's high-tech Super Lab.
