What's a STEM club? How do you run a STEM club during the pandemic? Hear from people running clubs, have the chance to ask your questions and share your experieinces.
In this webinar, learn what constitutes a STEM club... perhaps you already run one and don't even know it! The ways in which you can start a new club or continue to run an existing club given the logistical complications at school caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will be discussed. You will hear from Rohima Crook from digital learning organisation Raspberry Pi, and STEM club leaders Rhian McClarence, Paul Treble and Leonie Briggs will talk about how they run their clubs and what their plans are for the future. Ask the speakers your questions or seek advice and share your own experiences.
The webinar will take place Thursday, 26 November 2020, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT.
This webinar is being organised by STEM Learning - the largest provider of STEM education and careers support to schools, colleges and community groups across the UK.
