This brand new summer school experience will give practical tips, skills and hands-on experience across all STEM subjects including experimenting, research and project management. It will also help you explore the practical application of your GCSE STEM studies to the next steps in your journey. There will be support around GCSE results day to help you think about your choice of Year 12 and 13 courses and how they link to the STEM areas you enjoy.
