It is the Government’s ambition to establish a STEM Club in every school in the country, with W5 STEM managing this project in Northern Ireland, we can provide teachers with top tips and advice on setting up a new club, funding opportunities available, activity ideas and access to additional STEM Club support through our database of 900 STEM Ambassadors across Northern Ireland.
The aims of STEM Clubs are:
If you are setting up a club from scratch there are many considerations, from what the focus of your club will be and how to get support in running it, to planning initial activities and assessing the impact of your club. We have prepared a comprehensive and accessible set of guidance and advice, including tips from successful club leaders, on every stage of the process, which are available as short videos from the STEM clubs website, at www.stemclubs.net
A successful STEM club can bring benefits to students and the whole school.
