In The Know: Let’s celebrate British Science Week!
Today is the start of British Science Week! This ten-day celebration of all things science, technology, engineering and maths has inspired us to dig up some great activities and events for your budding scientists.
Engineer Your Future – Science Museum
The Science Museum has a fascinating, interactive exhibition perfect for young people who are thinking about their futures and interested in pursuing a career in engineering. Recommended for 11-15 year-olds, your child would be able to design a space rover, build and test complex engineering systems, and see cutting-edge test models on display. Free for everyone, read more about this exhibition here!
If your child is aged 9-17 and already interested in tech then these non-residential tech camps could be a great platform for them to build their knowledge. Tech Camp has a large range of courses on offer, from Physics Game Design and Robot Inventor to the Gadget Factory. They vary in length, from one day to week-long, so there is something to suit everyone. Get more information and book your child’s space on their website.
Routes into STEM
Open to students in Year 10 (Age 14-15), Routes into STEM is great for those who want to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths further. Your child would get the chance to find out more about apprenticeships, university degrees and career opportunities so that they can make well-informed decisions about their next academic steps. A combination of interactive activities, presentations and industry visits comprise this rewarding and challenging programme. Apply here.
