Support for STEM Clubs

STEM Clubs are individual to each school and there is no fixed formula for running one. There is, however, plenty of support available for those wanting to start a STEM Club, and for existing club leaders who want to develop their club further.

The STEM Clubs Support Programme provides additional support through the STEM Clubs community group, our club support team and the STEM Ambassadors programme.

STEM Club stories

  • Bridging the gap between primary and secondary school

    "We started running a Space Club for key stage 2 pupils based within a primary school. Our primary pupils are given the chance to carry out activities in different facilities and settings, with equipment they wouldn’t always have access to. Linking with secondary schools has also been invaluable because it helps make the transition from key stage 2 to key stage 3 smoother for the pupils."

    Jackie Flaherty is an ESERO-UK Space Ambassador, Director of STEM at Chipping Campden School and an Ogden Trust Teacher Fellow. We chatted to her about her experience of setting up a STEM Club and the journey the club has been on over the last six years.
