Be celebrated for your impact: Design and Technology Association Excellence Awards

Do you know someone who has made a real impact on design, technology and engineering? Nominate them for a Design and Technology Association Excellence Award.

The awards give professional recognition to individuals for their contribution to design and technology education.

STEM Learning is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the 2018 Design and Technology Excellence Awards, celebrating STEM learning opportunities in design, technology and engineering.

“As an organisation that promotes STEM learning in both primary and secondary schools across the UK, we are delighted to be able to celebrate the fantastic teachers and technicians that have gone above and beyond to enrich their students’ STEM education.” - Gemma Taylor, Design, Technology and Engineering Subject Lead at STEM Learning

Category 7: Development of STEM learning opportunities

This award recognises the development of resources, services or access to activity that enables and promote design and technology within science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM) activity. Typically, the award winner will have enabled cross-curricular learning to be facilitated in schools, requiring teachers from different STEM subjects to work closely together.

Pupils’ design and technology outcomes resulting from this activity will demonstrate sophistication and reflect the use of knowledge, skills and understanding from other subjects. Nominees will have instigated STEM projects with pupils that make critical use of design and technology.

Whether through work with STEM Ambassadors, STEM Clubs or CPD, there are plenty of ways that STEM Learning can support you to inspire your students.

The closing date for nominations is 31 January 2018.
