Get inspired and gain confidence for teaching STEM in this year’s interactive, hand-on and fun STEM Summer School. Explore the wonders of the space and act out an electrical circuit. Go crazy with maths, handle some exciting biological specimens and develop your engineering skills. All workshops will increase your knowledge and confidence and give you a whole new arsenal of skills for teaching science, engineering and maths in the classroom.
