STEMworks is a dedicated team with a passion and vision to generate excitement and enthusiasm for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We are a not for profit company based in Gloucestershire which specialises in the design and delivery of education outreach programmes. We work with Schools, businesses, teachers and other organisations promoting STEM skills throughout Wales and the West.
We run a wide range of activities such as workshops, competitions and awards and hope to inspire young people from all backgrounds to consider careers in Engineering, Science and Technology. We have a well established relationship with many international, national and local companies working together to promote careers in Engineering, Science and Maths.
STEMworks runs a wide variety of programmes in both secondary and primary schools to bring STEM businesses and education together. Through these links, employers can help raise the aspirations of young people and are able to be directly involved in initiatives which encourage young people to develop key skills required for the world of work. This provides businesses an opportunity to exercise a medium/long term recruitment strategy whilst raising their profile in the local community.

Within schools, STEMworks can provide support for the STEM curriculum. We can help by giving a project an exciting kick start by running one of our workshops or by linking you to a local employer who can help to bring a real life perspective to the curriculum. STEMworks also facilitates popular teacher CPD courses with a focus on STEM.
We run programmes throughout the UK but our principal area focus is South West of England and South Wales, including: Gloucestershire, Bristol, Newport, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Herefordshire, Gwent, Somerset, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
