What makes me tick? The development of people through exciting, challenging, appropriate and engaging activities. This applies to both young and old and to those from all walks of life.

Mike Cargill, Director

The whole team at UK STEM believes passionately in affording opportunities to our younger generation. We see ourselves as a complimentary addition to a formal education setting, and we know our teaching colleagues are just as passionate about offering these opportunities as we are.

UK STEM was born from humble beginnings; a one-man band, who’s drive and determination to succeed in providing opportunities has brought us to the company we are today.

All the staff that make up UK STEM bring with them their creativity, indiviual experiences, and above all their passion for STEM education. This is not just a job to us: we eat, breathe and dream STEM education, and believe this is the strongest pathway to providing excellent career opporunities for our future generation, and enabling young people to make informed decisions about STEM careers and pathways.

What we do

Release of CANDOO

UK STEM are excited to annouce the release of CANDOO – a fun and engaging approach to learning about careers. It can be played as a game on its own, or built into wider careers activites.

The aim of the game is to build up skills and qualifications to complete your career path. You can complete your career path by collecting 4 out of 5 skills cards and a qualification relevant to your career. Win by collecting the most points. Use life experiences cards to help your career, add bonus points to your career or even prevent others from completing their career path!

Wraparound activities are available for free from our website to support your career-related learning. Access them here.

Global STEM Awards

The Global STEM Awards have been developed by UKSTEM as a way of rewarding young people for their creativity and innovation in STEM subjects. We believe strongly in the power of STEM education: we also have a social enterprise arm called STEM Without Borders. This was set up so that the younger international generation also benefits from our programmes. Some of these we have delivered personally in countries such as Cambodia, providing disadvantaged students with further knowledge to enable them to choose a STEM career.

Coming Soon…
