Oxbridge Inspire: Exhibition of Ideas
An Exhibition of Ideas is a facilitated workshop designed to promote STEM-related conversations between students, teachers and industry. Conversation cards are used to focus discussions, which are consolidated to give the school insight into various aspects of STEM and STEM education.
Examples of discussion topics include:
● Personal journeys studying or working within STEM;
● Inspirations, ideas, questions, solutions relating to STEM education;
● What makes STEM-inspired products innovative?;
● Aspirations for the local STEM community.
Please contact us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to run an Exhibition of Ideas event at your school. We are also looking for industry participants wishing to reach out to young people and encourage them to pursue STEM careers.
