STEM Day

Tuesday 7th April, 2015

We're holding a 'STEM Day' on Tuesday 28th April for KS3/KS4 learners at our campus on West Denton Way. It promises to be an exciting day where everyone will be able to experience the range of topics covered by the Science, Engineering and Technology curriculum with a particular focus on renewable technologies.

What's it all about?

Our STEM Renewable Energy Workshops are designed specifically for KS3 & KS4 learners and can help to support their Science, Engineering and Technology curriculum work by developing the learners' confidence in using and understanding renewable technologies. Workshops will focus on:

  • knowledge and understanding of renewable energy and climate change
  • investigating the merits of renewable energies vs carbon based fuels
  • exploring the role of renewable hydrogen and fuel cells and the possibilities they offer for a low carbon society
  • Engaging first hand the daily operational procedures for the running of an EV vehicle
  • identifying the future green career opportunities of the 21st century
