STEM Programme

Please note this is an enrichment options. Students do not add this at the application stage, but will add it at enrolment.

Enrichment Overview
The STEM enrichment is an opportunity for students to further develop their skills and passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Students will work towards achieving the gold CREST award alongside exciting trips and visits. CREST is the British Science Association’s scheme for STEM project work that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers. This is an independent project highly regarded by Universities and Employers in STEM subjects. It will give students the chance to explore areas of STEM that are not on the specifications of their subjects. At points within your project there will be opportunities to gain support from academics at Sheffield University’s Engineering department. Throughout the year, you will also have opportunities for trips and visits. This enrichment is open to all Science and Maths students and we particularly welcome female students as they are underrepresented in STEM careers.

Why choose this enrichment?
You will enrich and broaden your experiences of STEM, outside of your subject specification. You will develop research, critical thinking and practical skills. By completing the project you will be able to demonstrate you can work independently and are self-motivated.

How long will the enrichment last?
Full year

How much time a week will it involve?
One lesson. You will be expected to work independently on your project outside of lesson time.

What will it cost?
There may be some costs to cover travel for trips and visits.

Who can sign up?
Open to all students who study an A level or BTEC in Science or Maths.
If we have high numbers of interest we may go through a selection process.
This enrichment is open to all Science and Maths students and we particularly welcome female students as they are underrepresented in STEM careers.

How do I sign up?
At enrolment. It is not possible to do another enrichment alongside this.
