Race with STEM
The course provides a fun and challenging introduction to a number of different types of engineering and highlighting the science, mathematics and technology concepts that are integral to each subject. Alongside the subject specific activities we will show you what it’s like to be in higher education and encourage you to problem solve, communicate and work as a team, all vital skills for education and work. The course is based on a challenge which you will be working on in a small team, you will initially be given some programming and workshop skills and you will be supported throughout the challenge with helpers who will offer advice and suggestions.
Living in student halls and having academic sessions throughout the course will give you a taste of what it’s like to study at university. You will also participate in evening social activities.
This course is suitable for students who are interested in either maths, physics, programming or technology and would like to apply their skills in a fun group challenge whilst learning about careers that might interest them.
