We’re pleased to be working with partners the Youth STEMM Award to engage young audiences in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.
The Youth STEMM Award is an achievement-based award for students in Years 9-13, designed to support and inspire the next generation of STEMM professionals.
Participants log STEMM-related activities across four core strands on a personalised e-portfolio.
Students can work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold level Award, inspire the next generation, engage the public, develop skills and shape their future career in the STEMM sector. The e-portfolio allows schools to capture engagement across their cohort and identify areas that need further development.
Every event in the Norwich Science Festival counts towards the ‘Developing skills and knowledge’ strand of the YSA. Take a note of the length of the events you attend and log them onto your e-portfolio with some evidence – a selfie with the presenter would be great, or a note about what you discovered.
Plus, there’s also the YSA Juniors scheme for students aged 7 to 13. The scheme aims to encourage younger children to explore the amazing world of STEMM and to develop their curiosity and ignite their passion for science.
