The St Paul’s Way Trust Science Summer School has been successfully running for 4 years, providing an exciting view of cutting edge scientific research alongside exploration of scientific areas in greater depth than lessons allow or that lie outside of the normal science curriculum completely. Whatever the specific nature of the workshop, presentation or talk, the Science Summer School helps those with a genuine enjoyment of STEM based subjects to learn from some of the most influential and internationally renowned scientific minds in the world.
The St Paul’s Way Trust Science Summer School aims to promote the achievement and take up in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics based subjects and careers. There is a particular emphasis to promote STEM subjects and careers to those students who are underrepresented in these areas but with an overriding aim of providing a scientific experience that will not be forgotten to everyone. It looks to address the key national and global issue of a scientific deficit by providing a truly inspiring opportunity for pupils through a number of exciting practical based workshops, unusual activities and high profile guest speakers who deliver short “TED talks” style presentations.
The details of the previous Science Summer Schools can be found on this side navigation panel. Each year has seen the development of the event, increasing the number of participants and raising the overall profile of the two days. We continue to look to expand and build upon this success each year and details of this upcoming Science Summer School can also be found in the side navigation panel.
The Science Summer School has forged and continued links with a number of internationally renowned institutions. These institutions have, and continue to support the SSS through a range of methods including financial support, resources, advertising and personnel. Institutions working with the Science Summer School include, but are not exclusive to, Lloyds, Catlin, Queen Mary, UCL and Glaxosmithkline. Notable individuals who have been involved with the project include Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Dr Hannah Fry and Vince Cable MP. Professor Brian Cox is patron of the event and is extensively involved with each Science Summer School.
