2500 Schools Celebrate STEM Clubs Week!

Around 2,500 schools across the UK celebrated the first ever STEM Clubs Week (2-6 February) running activities to showcase the creativity, problem-solving and employability skills that their science, technology, engineering and maths Clubs offer.

The week was a great opportunity for students who devote their free time to STEM to celebrate their achievements and receive recognition for their dedication.

STEM Clubs Week celebrated all the amazing work that STEM Clubs, showcasing STEM Clubs and demonstrating the dedication and enthusiasm of the teachers and students.

The Week was for all secondary schools throughout the UK. Schools with an existing STEM Club met as normal and took part in a national celebration. For those schools that didn’t have a STEM Club, it was an ideal opportunity to set one up and get started with support from MerseySTEM or STEMNET to create a successful club. Clubs develop skills as well as provide a sense of achievement for both you and your students.

The theme for STEM Clubs Week was Celebrating Diversity. Through social media, clubs could share the different types of activities happening in school. STEM Clubs could create their own activities within the theme or access suggested resources via the STEMNET website.

There are many advantages to supporting STEM Clubs – they are less bound by the curriculum, they often take place earlier or later in the day than formal lessons, and the students are all STEM enthusiasts. If you’re interested in supporting a club but aren’t sure what that means in practice, take a look at STEMNET’s new fact sheet.
