In this STEMNET resource, Assistant Head Teacher Matthew Evans describes activities undertaken in his specialist Technology College to support STEM subject teaching. The school runs many STEM Clubs and has worked with STEM Ambassadors for nearly 15 years.
Matthew works closely with the STEM Ambassadors and they organise regular events, such as a Science and Technology week as well as ad hoc events and workshops.
“Students attending the events get a lot out of them. They’re not just in a school lesson – they’re working with real engineers to solve real engineering problems, and the enthusiasm of the Ambassadors is contagious."
