In the Know – STEM activities for this summer!

The summer holidays are fast approaching and we’ve put together some STEM ideas and activities to keep your child busy and not bored over the holidays!

The Maths Marathon – Making Maths fun
This workshop from GT Scholars aims to help more young people develop a love for mathematics. Designed for children aged 11-16, the event makes maths fun, relatable and easier to understand by solving everyday problems. The Maths Marathon is on the 14th of July – find out more about bookings here.

CyberFirst
Tech-savvy teenagers can benefit from the free places available on the popular CyberFirst courses across the UK in July and August 2018. Tech employers believe there is a skills shortage in the areas of cyber security and therefore are focussed on bringing these courses to young people aged 14 – 17. As teenagers are exposed to technology daily and readily have access to it, the courses provide a fun and interesting way to learn about cyber security and possibly pursuing a career in it. Find out more how to register here.

Explore the human brain
The Hub at Wellcome collection is offering an exciting opportunity for families to learn about our brains and how we all differ in the ways we think, learn and explore. You’ll be able to explore the mind through coding, virtual reality, circuits and sound orchestras, pop-up performances, making and tinkering with immersive environments. There are free tickets for this event running from the 25th -27th of July but spaces are limited so register now!

GT Scholars offers after-school programmes that help young people to achieve their academic and career aspirations. Our programmes include mentoring and enrichment sessions for young people aged 11-18. If you would like to know more about our programmes, please contact us here.
