"What a great opportunity for our students to work together! Thank you for allowing us to experince the different branches of STEM with real experts in a real-life context."
The first tier in Cambridge LaunchPad is for students between 8 and 11 years of age in Years 4–6.
The Stars programme aims to introduce students to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and increase their enthusiasm and curiosity for these subjects.
Each Project Day is hosted by one of our industry partners who invite the entire year group to take part in hands-on activities and experience a specific STEM field in a real-world setting. All of the visits are completely free of charge and fully risk assessed. We even arrange the transport for you.
The programme does not focus on academic ability, but other skills such as teamwork, creativity and communication. The students that best demonstrate these attributes are invited to an awards ceremony.
A fantastic hub of resources, bringing Cambridge STEM businesses into classrooms across the region.
