The Power of STEM – CDT Series

The power of STEM – making a difference in the world 

Interested in STEM subjects at University?  Wonder about some of the challenges new graduate researchers are working on? 

Young researchers at four University of Leeds Doctoral Training Centres invite you to participate in a short series of online interactive workshops that will take place during early evening sessions (4:30 pm-5:45 pm).  Find out about their journeys, the area of STEM they are now working in, and some of their current research.

When will the next set sessions take place?

The next set of sessions will take place in November 2021

      Thursday 4 November 2021         Fantastic fluids and where to find them
Wednesday 10 November 2021   Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine: How to build a human
Wednesday 17 November 2021   Saving lives With AI
Thursday 25 November 2021  Decarbonising heavy duty transport: The use of advanced biofuels   

Who are the sessions for? 

Year 12 students studying at least one STEM subject at A level (Year 11 students considering studying STEM subjects at A level, and Year 13 students studying STEM subjects at A level are also welcome to apply for places). 


When you apply you will be asked to select which session(s) you would like to attend – we would expect you to choose at least two sessions, but would love it if you could come to all four. 

Places will be limited, and priority will be given to students who fulfil our Access to Leeds criteria.   

Applications for places are now open:

Please use the link below to apply for the November series.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 22 October 2021. 

Will there be further sessions in the future?

We are hoping to run further The Power of STEM series later in the academic year, with practical sessions hopefully taking place on campus at Easter 2022.
