Welcome to the STEMPOINT East pages for STEM employers, businesses, academia and individuals.
STEMPOINT East is an educational charity that acts as a link between education and STEM industry. Our aim is to encourage children to enjoy STEM subjects at all ages and help them consider the many routes that can lead to a fulfilling STEM career.
How to get involved
We invite you to support our work in helping to develop employability skills and raise the aspirations of the next generation of scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists. We invite you to support our work in helping to develop employability skills and raise the aspirations of the next generation of scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists.
You can do this in a number of ways:
- Sponsorship towards our projects
- Sign up as a STEM Ambassador to help inspire young people about STEM careers
- Encourage your employees to become STEM Ambassadors
- Provide a Nuffield Research Placement for a 17 year old student: We are looking for organisations and companies who can provide workplace experience and supervise a student during the summer. (NB: Summer 2020 projects have all been online via remote supervision.)
Link your organisation’s activities
Many employers have outreach programmes to inspire young people about STEM. Perhaps you’ve just started out, or wish to expand the reach of what you do.
We can help you develop your activities and bring them to target audiences, for example; in areas of economic deprivation, rural or coastal communities or for people who are currently under-represented in STEM industry.
We don’t just work with schools and colleges, but community youth groups too.
