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.
We have a particular interest in delivering sustained programmes to students from a widening participation background and aim to increase diversity of undergraduate students in STEM subjects by working with groups currently underrepresented.
The STEM Outreach Team is part of Educational Engagement, the schools and colleges outreach and widening participation office at the University of Leeds.
