Example projects carried out last year included:
- 3D imaging of stroke patient CT scans with Brainomix in Oxford
- Investigating the Evolution of Flight with the Museum of Natural History

STEM Apprentice Placements
STEM Apprentice Placements are aimed at young people in year 11 or 12 who would like to know more about STEM apprenticeships. The placements are hosted by STEM businesses and academic institutions and last between 2 – 4 weeks. Students experience different departments in an organisation and get the chance to meet and work with their current apprentices.
All STEM placements take place during the school summer holidays and travel bursaries are available. Places are open to state school students living and studying in Oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire. This year we have offered a total of 35 STEM placements.
Applications are now closed.
Many thanks to last year’s placement providers: BMW Mini Plant, Earth Trust, Laing O’Rourke, Lucy Electric, MRC Harwell, Olamalu, Oxford University IT services, Oxford University Department of Engineering Science, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, Skanska, SS Tube Technology and Unipart.
