How to get involved

There are many ways that your business can get involved with our secondary school programme.

STEM Careers Programme

Supporting our STEM Careers Programme provides employers with an opportunity to engage with their local community and beyond, develop employees’ communication and organisational skills, and contribute towards the pipeline of STEM skills for the future. Science Oxford can provide training, opportunities and connections for employers to work effectively with local schools.

In particular, you can volunteer to help support our STEM Career Days:
– Provide a tour/talk or activity for a STEM Insight Week
– Provide a Work Experience Placement or support our STEM Summer Experience
– A speaker for our Young Scientists of the Year programme

Event Sponsorship

We deliver an extensive programme of school outreach and special events that reaches over 20,000 young people annually. Opportunities exist to support many of our activities, ranging from in-kind donations such as prizes or event space to financial support. For example, we are always looking for sponsorship to engage with underserved audiences and as part of Young Scientists of the Year awards.

Project Support

We can provide support to businesses who want to establish links with a particular school or who wish to develop a specific project related to their specialism. The Science Oxford team has extensive experience in developing engaging hands-on activities on specific topic areas and for particular audiences.

It’s very interesting and gives a wider understanding of different careers within the STEM industry.
