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.

Get involved

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.

In addition, our website is packed full of resources for STEM activities, as well as your stories for inspiration.
