STEM to STEAM that gives young people more opportunities

#TakeOnTomorrow Champion the Challengers

We cannot take on the challenges of the future successfully without the right skills. That’s why we launched our pioneering NUSTEM project in 2014 to help engage more young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM subjects) and STEAM (including the Arts!)

NUSTEM is a long-term commitment to the region and its children. We target all stages of a child's journey, from early years and primary to sixth-form and beyond, to enable them to make informed choices about their future with STEM subjects and careers. By supporting children's key influencers – their teachers, families, and the wider community – we aim to make a measurable difference to children's aspirations.

Our evidence-based approach builds on and contributes to the latest research thinking, integrating best practice ideas from outreach, widening participation, and equality, diversity and inclusion sectors. We build partnerships across the public and private sectors, incorporating professional bodies and networks, employers, science and education trusts, research bodies, local councils and more, working together to meet the skills needs of the region.

We focus our work on areas of high social need, where we believe we can have the greatest impact.
