STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

This club is not running this term.

STEM Club is a powerful and enjoyable way to engage children with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.

We hope to ignite an interest in STEM subjects and provide a platform to extend children's learning.  Most importantly, these sessions are fun and exciting; allowing all involved to explore STEM subjects in innovative and inventive ways outside the curriculum.
