Secondary Schools Programme

Our aim is to inspire and engage students with an early opportunity to improve their knowledge and understanding of STEM, engage with local employers and develop work-related skills.

Science Oxford’s STEM Careers Programme is designed to create opportunities for secondary school students to gain the information, knowledge and skills that could springboard them into a STEM career.

We provide students with an insight into STEM careers by offering STEM Careers Days and Skills Workshops, Insight Weeks, STEM Summer Experiences and Work Experience Placements. We also celebrate and champion students’ hard work, commitment and enthusiasm in science at our Young Scientists of the Year Awards.

To keep up-to-date with all of the activities we offer for secondary schools, please sign up to our newsletter here.

I really enjoyed seeing companies come in and speak about STEM. It was also extremely nice to have the opportunity to ask questions and see what goes on behind the scenes…I enjoyed the freedom of the research and the support that we were given for the research. Thank you so much for the experience.
