We are a key provider and coordinator of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education activities and support in Essex. These are for students at school and home, undergraduates and recent graduates, and are designed to both stimulate an interest in STEM and to open possible career paths.
We offer an annual programme of events to promote STEM subjects. Our main education activities are:
- Schools' Competition: an annual event at which students from local schools showcase their work and compete for prizes awarded by the judges.
- My Smarter Essex: an initiative to engage citizens in the design of a smarter future Essex, with the opportunity to meet with local companies.
- Imagine! STEM Club: out-of-school clubs and masterclasses to enhance the science curriculum with fun, practical activities.
Support for STEM activities
CSES actively promotes, enables and supports the provision of STEM in education, in partnership with other local and national organisations.
To this end, we have made available a bursary to support the start-up and growth of STEM clubs within schools.
If you would like to discuss STEM support in your school or at home, please contact our Education Lead.
