The STEM outreach team deliver an exciting programme of activities inspiring young learners in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In addition, our Education Outreach colleagues work with schools to raise awareness of, and aspirations towards, higher education.
We provide activity for both pre-16 and post-16 learners to encourage exploration and understanding of life as a STEM student at university and the real-world applications of STEM subjects. We work in a hybrid manner, delivering activity online, welcoming students onto campus, and visiting local schools. We work closely with professional services at the university to develop high quality resources and online modules to support transition to university.
Many of our activities are targeted, so that we reach and support those students who are underrepresented at university in our subject areas, aligning with our Access and Participation Plan commitments to the Office for Students. Information on the impact of our widening participation activities and initiatives can be accessed in our Annual Report.
All of our events and resources are free of charge – all we ask is that you support us by completing the relevant evaluations so that we can continue to develop our activities and deliver to the highest standard!
The STEM Outreach Team is part of Educational Engagement, the schools and colleges outreach and widening participation office at the University of Leeds.
