Making the most of your Centre
Effective provision of STEM in schools requires a foundation of strong subject teaching. Alongside this schools and colleges work hard to ensure that young people are aware of the range of opportunities that STEM study opens up for them. A STEM approach requires collaboration across the whole school in planning and delivery of activity – both within and outside of the curriculum.
The National STEM Centre building is open throughout the year. Schools and colleges are welcome to use the Centre for:
- department away days
- subject network meetings
- cross-curricular planning events
- whole-school STEM training
Individual teachers are also very welcome to use the library.
Our visitors have access to meeting rooms, where you may work in a purpose designed environment with access to the Centre's resource collections. High quality, low cost catering facilities and on-site accommodation is also available. Further information is available here. Please contact us if you have any queries or would like to book a visit.
