STEM Clubs are a powerful and highly enjoyable way to engage school students with STEM subjects. They can be fun and fulfilling for students and club leaders, and have positive impacts for the school.

Through STEM Clubs, students gain practical, team work and leadership skills, their confidence and engagement in STEM increases as well as their motivation to study STEM and enter STEM careers.

Girls w/ STEaM allows girls to work with STEM and infuse the ARTS into that integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  This club works seemlessy with Girls Who Code to provide young ladies with opportunities outside of the school day for engagnment in the STEM disciplines.  

The pupils are developing a valuable skill set which they might not have got had they not attended the club and many of these skills such as teamwork, independence, presentational skills and resilience will be useful to them in the world of work and beyond school.
