Full STEAM Ahead!

New International project for Y9 students is launched!

At the end of November we were delighted to welcome 7 staff from our partner schools in Koblenz, Germany, and Zaragoza, Spain who attended our first transnational project meeting to initiate and plan for our new 3 year ERASMUS international project, following approval of our EU funding application in September.

This exciting new project entitled, ‘Full STEAM ahead’ will involve creating teams of teenage ambassadors of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths and languages) across all 3 countries. The aim is to train the ambassadors via an after school ERASMUS club about jobs, careers and skills in the STEAM sectors of industry, with a focus on Creative and Digital Arts to produce some exciting visual products to help promote these subjects and careers to their peers. Their role as ambassadors will then be to inform, engage and inspire younger learners to study these subjects and aspire to STEAM careers in the future.

More information about this amazing opportunity will also be available during Y9 Parents evening, and students will be asked to express their interest and complete a simple form before Christmas. The final selection will then take place in January. Please note that this project is open to Y9 students of ALL ABILITIES and BACKGROUNDS – high academic success or parental financial support is not important. We are looking for students with a positive attitude and willingness to work hard, attend after school workshops, and embrace new experiences and cultures!
