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 club focused on STEM-related subjects.

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