We offer a wide range of experience days in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) for primary and secondary school children, from the London boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Newham.
These fun and interactive experience days give young people a taste of how the principles of STEM can be applied to a variety of careers and job sectors.

Coding & Digital Skills Challenges
Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer to behave how you want it to - every line of code tells the computer to do something. Learning how to code is a valuable skill to learn in the 21st century economy, as a multitude of jobs and careers become available, as coding becomes ever more in demand, not just within the technology sector, but also in industries such as finance, manufacturing and healthcare.
CREST is a scheme that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists, technologists, engineers or mathematicians. It is the UK’s only nationally recognised scheme for student-led project work in the STEM subjects; we offer a Bronze Award, Discovery Award and Superstar Award.
The development of transferable employability skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, time management and problem solving are all crucial for future careers.
