The opprtunities available for your students to get involved in engineering, science and technology activities are ever increasing.
Here are some ideas:
- set up a Young Engineers Club at your school
This is an organisation which supports schools in encouraging students to get involved with engineering. Their website contains lots of ideas for STEM activities and competitions and support includes bursaries for clubs.
- set up a STEM Club at your school
More club activity ideas and also take part in a STEM Challenge
- bring your older students one of our Engineering our Future lectures (usually aimed at year 10 - 13s)
- Encourage your students to take part in STEM competitions such as:
this incorporates many other competitons such as the CREST awards, The Young Engineers Awards, Young Engineer for Britain
- Promote and support your students in applying for residential engineering courses such as:
- Promote the Arkwright Scholarship to your year 11 DT students
- Promote and support your students in applying for engineering placements such as:
- Run an engineering scheme in you school such as:
- Go4SET (for year 8 or 9s)
- Engineering Education Scheme (for year 12s)
- a project leading to a CREST award
- Invite external providers in to run STEM events at your school such as:
- Investigate organisations and companies education programmes such as:
- BAE Systems educational programme
- IET teachers resources
- IET Faraday programme
- Royal Institution
- The British Science Association
- run trips to places such as:
- the National Space Centre
- the Science Museum
- local engineering companies
- the annual national Big Bang Fair
- university events
Please contact the Webmaster if you find any of these links does not work, or to provide information about another idea which could be included on this page.
Please also send us articles to be included on the CSES website to share your or your students' experiences of any of these activities.
