Primary Schools: Apply for the Polar Explorer Programme!
Primary schools in the north of England who are keen to raise aspirations and attainment in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in their school, are invited to apply for the Polar Explorer Programme – a new £1m government funded project, aiming to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The project will use the UK’s new polar research ship, the RRS Sir David Attenborough, to bring an exciting new context to the teaching of STEM subjects, placing relevant curriculum topics within the context of both the construction and launch of the ship, and of polar exploration in general.
Selected schools will benefit from support in key areas – such as working scientifically and developing pupils’ enquiry skills. They will also gain the support of a Polar Ambassador – a specially selected, trained STEM professional – who will help to enrich the teaching of STEM subjects in those schools.
