Our pupils have thoroughly enjoyed the research involved in completing their Global STEM Awards. We deliver the sessions to help pupils achieve these awards through our ‘High Flyers’ after school club, which is really popular for those children wishing to find out more about STEM subjects and careers. Pupils that have participated in the awards definitely demonstrate an improvement in their knowledge of the wider range of STEM fields; for example, some of their projects have included: ‘An insight into the healthcare system in Indonesia’; ‘The development of electric aircraft in the USA’; ‘Endangered turtles – what the Caribbean resorts are doing to help’; and ‘The increase of skin cancers in the UK – what are we doing to prevent this?’. Most importantly, the Global STEM Awards programme is very efficiently organised, with excellent resources, a clear website and easy access to a member of the team, should you have any queries.
