STEM Career Days

Our in-school STEM Career Days are designed to give young people insights into STEM careers. They also develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills through practical activities.

Career Days are a full day ‘off timetable’ for a whole year group (up to a maximum of 200 students), suitable for year 7, 8 or 9 students, and are tailored to individual school requirements. You could choose a ‘Challenge Day’ or a ‘Carousel’ of activities, and build some of our STEM Skills Workshops into the programme for the day. We round off each day with a talk to highlight the value of STEM skills across a wide range of roles and to inspire STEM careers.


£495+VAT (including 2 members of staff) for a full day.
