Turing House

Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM)

Science, Technology engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects have been identified by the government, business and educationalists as being vitally important to the 21st century economy and job opportunities for young people.  STEM education develops critical thinkers, encouraging students to be curious, ask questions, and make connections as to why the world exists as it does. It equips students with skills and competencies they will use in future life, even if they don't pursue a career in STEM, such as problem solving, innovation; logical thinking and collaboration.

You can find out more about STEM at Turing House by exploring the subject links on our Curriculum page.  You can also follow our STEM departments on Twitter.

There are organisations and employers with excellent education outreach programmes in our area, such as the National Physical Laboratory and BP. Some of their employees are STEM Ambassadors, who visit local schools to run activities, and we use these resources whenever possible.

We encourage our students’ awareness of, and involvement in, local environmental projects and have participated in national STEM education projects such as the EEP Robotics Challenge, Salters Science Festival, the National Cipher Challenge, the Ultimate STEM Challenge, the UKMT Maths Challenge, Maths in Motion, the Space to Earth Challenge and more. Keep an eye on our newsletters for recent activities.

We enhance our core STEM curriculum with extra curricular activities, such as an after-school STEM club, practical workshops, design challenges, field trips, and visits to places such as Bletchley Park or the Science Museum. We normally organise an exciting range of activities for Science Week each year.
