Shaping our future through STEM – STEM Webinar series for the Northern Alliance starting September 2020


Across academic session 2020/2021, the STEM team within the Northern Regional Improvement Team are developing a webinar programme for practitioners across the Northern Alliance.

At the heart of this programme is the belief that STEM can empower and inspire our young people to help shape their world and future.  The global impact of COVID 19 has shown the importance of considering how we live our lives, for example, living more sustainably and supporting local economies, the significance of digital communications, and the unforeseen impacts of our actions on the environment.

A brief synopsis of each session in Phase 1 of the webinar programme is detailed below and practitioners are invited to sign up using the Eventbrite links.

Members of the STEM team can provide more detail on request (contacts below).

The webinars will be hosted on Google Meet. All sessions will take place from 16:00-17:00 (twilight) and will be able to host up to 250 attendees.

We will also be inviting establishments from across the Northern Alliance to share their practice.  The STEM team will offer follow up sessions with participants, focusing on supporting establishments and associated schools groups.
