About the tour
The STEM Secondary Tour was designed to strengthen students ability to integrate and apply their knowledge and skills across the four subject areas. Students will solve authentic problems, encouraging collaboration and critical thinking, and develop practical solutions in unique learning environments. Guided by educators and scientists, students will have the opportunity to build and operate their own Go-Kart in a workshop designed by industry-leading aeronautical engineers. Students will develop their curiosity through a series of activities, such as playing the role of an investigator using real forensic techniques, applying mathematical problem-solving at the famous codebreaking site: Bletchley Park, in addition to coding flight patterns using Swift coding language. Finally, students will learn about Alan Turing's work on artificial intelligence at the National Computer Museum and work as a team to explore how scientific modelling and physical forces are applied when firing a projectile. Additional inquiry-based workshops covering biodiversity and ecology are also available at Kew Gardens.
Meet Kew scientists to learn about their research and conservation projects around the globe.
Develop mathematical thinking surrounded by 2 million years of human history at the British Museum.
Choose from a range of exciting one-day experiential programmes and work in a modern laboratory at the L'Oreal Young Scientist Centre at the Royal Institute.
Enjoy visits to a theme park to study engineering and design, and Bletchley Park for an exhilarating WW2 maths challenge.
Discover and explore London and the surrounding areas, enjoying the historic sights, attractions and scenic spots.
Participate in exciting, customised educational workshops at some of the best museums in Europe, including the British Museum, Science Museum and Natural History Museum.
