About STEMHaus

STEMHaus online summer school aims to prepare learners for study at GCSE and A Level, in addition to providing relevant and cross curricular themed content delivered by STEM professionals.

What does STEMHaus include?

STEM Workshops & Seminars

Our teachers and instructors offer an extensive variety of lessons and workshops across all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), providing learners with opportunities to focus on their individual areas of development. Learners can create their own timetable specific to their individual interests & needs.

See the STEMHaus Curriculum document for more details.

If you’re taking part in STEMHaus 2023, see the STEMHaus Handbook sent to you by the STEMHaus Programme Manager.

Bespoke Study Techniques Sessions

The teaching and instructing team consists of past examiners with a wealth of experience both in the classroom and from the perspective of marking papers. The bespoke study techniques seminars will focus on strategies to best prepare for examinations and how to approach questions with useful hints and tips.

Small Group Tuition

More than ever, learners are in need of individual or small group support, particularly in key areas such as Science and Mathematics. Our instructors will deliver seminar style sessions that focus on common areas of misconception in each subject stream.

STEMHaus Speaker Series

Our instructors serve as a resource and as role models to widen horizons and enhance aspirations. The speaker series is a series of panel events through which you’ll hear about topics including Women in STEM, Careers in STEM, Sports & STEM, and other important and exciting topics.

Guest Lectures from Industry Leaders

Addressing the common theme across the subject streams of ‘achieving net zero’, there will be a number of guest speakers delivering lectures around current climate issues.
