our reSOURCES

We’ve developed some activities – with help from our employer volunteers and STEM Ambassadors. These include:

Resources - remote activities
STEM AMBASSADOR REMOTE ACTIVITIES

If you are a STEM Ambassador there are lots of ways you can get involved.  We are adding remote activities weekly from networking events to giving clues so young people can guess your job role.

RESOURCES - our recommendations

There are so many careers resources out there, it is difficult to know where to start looking. Our Careers Advisers and Employability Workers have gathered some of their favourite places to go for extra careers support.

RESOURCES - NATIONAL CODING WEEK

We are producing a range of resource sheets to support nationally recognised days and weeks.  The first one here is for National Coding Week which takes place from the 14th-20th September.  There are also a series of challenges to try out!

RESOURCES - RECYCLE WEEK

Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling and takes place 21st-27th September. This years theme is ‘Thanking the nation: ‘Together – We Recycle’. Here are some of our own resources as well as a Plastics Design Challenge to get involved in and a challenge set by STEM Ambassador, Liam Butterworth, entitled All in a Lather.
