Unilever R&D Port Sunlight partners with All About STEM to deliver an amazing range of primary and secondary school engagement projects. Take a look below and click for further information on how to get involved!

Your students can enter The All About STEM Competition individually, with friends, with their youth group, STEM Club or classmates. They can use their STEM skills to develop a new product, item, idea or approach to solve a problem facing our world or the people in it. 

We have plenty of partner resources to spark their creativity and due to the amazing support of our Competition Sponsors, we’re also able to provide teachers with a variety of supported options to get your students involved, including training, ideas and funding!  

The Bright Future Inspire project is for Y8 and Y9 students from state-funded secondary schools. Teams of 4 or 5 pupils take part in on-site workshops leading to a sustainable project challenge that is judged by Unilever staff as part of a celebration and assessment day.

The Bright Future Aspire project is a digital programme for Y10 to Y13 students. Building on the format of the Inspire programme, students are introduced to similar content, via online presentation and video material, completing a project challenge that is submitted for online judging.

In collaboration with All About STEM, Unilever has developed their Bright Future Excite Programme in order to help pupils in Y1-6 (ages 5-11) understand how the work done at the Unilever Port Sunlight R&D site relates to their schoolwork and the world in which they live.

The Bright Future Excite programme involves Unilever-sponsored delivery of the Reading is STEMsational programme to a selected number of primary schools each year.

All About STEM manages the Unilever R&D Port Sunlight Work Experience Programme. The programme offers Year 12 students a week’s placement during the second half of the Summer Term.

Unilever has been a long-term sponsor of the biggest STEM event for schools in the region which annually attracted over 8000 learners.

In addition, Unilever has a large cohort of STEM Ambassador volunteers and has partnered with All About STEM to deliver a range of other events and activities such as Careers Advice for Parents workshops and Facebook Digital Skills Training.
