The STEM Inspiration Awards

The STEM Inspiration Awards celebrate the individuals, organisations and STEM clubs working to inspire young people in science, technology, engineering and maths. We want to recognise the initiatives which make a real impact, sparking an enthusiasm for STEM subjects and paving the way for careers in STEM. The awards are sponsored by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
The winners of the STEM Inspiration Awards were announced on Thursday 20 May at 4 pm via the STEM Learning YouTube channel. The video was hosted by Dr Tara Shine, co-founder of Change By Degrees, author, and presenter of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in 2020.
