Residential Opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths
The Smallpeice Trust are an independent educational charity that runs hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities and exciting engineering courses for pupils in Years 6-12.
They offer 3-5 day residential courses held at universities and other secure venues to give students the opportunity to find out about specific areas of engineering like Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology and Structural Engineering.
Supervisory opportunities on their residential courses give you the opportunity to meet like- minded individuals and to work alongside representatives from leading companies.
These programmes are carefully planned and implemented by their experienced educational team working in partnership with leading industry, academic and professional bodies. The activities not only enable students to learn more about engineering, they also help to develop essential skills like problem solving, creative thinking, teamwork and time management which will benefit you in the classroom and in your future careers – whatever you go on to do.
For Year 11 or 12 (Pre-IB / IB1) Students some of the courses they have on offer this summer are:
- Biochemical Engineering at University College London
- Computing and Microelectronics at the University of Southampton
