The iSTEM+ model brings together commercial organisations with schools, colleges and academies as a hub within a local community. The network is open to institutions which educate children from 5 to 19 years old.
iSTEM+ supports teachers in ‘cutting through the noise’ to identify the best fit STEM programmes from the plethora available, along with home-grown activities.The hubs share and implement best practices in cross-curricular industry-enabled STEM education.
It is fundamentally a highly energised local STEM network, driven by educators and immersed in the real world.
This virtual forum will further extend the reach of this mutually beneficial and supportive community of proactive STEM professionals.
The network was established by the The Centre for Innovation in Technological Education in Cambridge http://ccite.org
