Year 6 STEM Inward Visits

Every June, groups of Year 6 pupils from local schools are hosted in the Central Teaching Laboratories. For many of them, this will be their first opportunity to visit a university, and we aim to inspire them and to raise their aspirations before their move to high school. The pupils rotate through three different STEM workshops in a day designed to introduce them both to the university campus and to the breadth of STEM taught here through interactive and fun workshops.
