Portsmouth has been identified as a priority Education Investment Area in the latest government white paper. Despite being an area rich in STEM opportunities and surrounded by the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, within this we also include computer science) industry, young people from local communities continue to be underrepresented in some prosperous STEM careers. The past two years have been a challenge but now it’s time to be creative, work collaboratively and reimagine education in Portsmouth.
This July, STEMunity will be running a ‘Leaders’ Vision’ event where local educational leaders can find out about the STEM approach and hear from Professor Bill Lucas about the Engineering Habits of Mind, and his more recent report which was published this year by RAEng, Reimagining Practical Learning in Secondary Schools: A Review of Evidence. The event will take place at The Training and Learning Centre at The Portsmouth Academy on Wednesday 6th July 4pm-6pm, Eventbrite tickets can be found below.
