STEM Leaders Conference

img_8058As part of our commitment to raising achievement through science at Pevensey and Westham, we are organising the first Eastbourne STEM Leaders Conference to be held on Thursday 20 April 2017. The event is aimed at Years 5, 6 and 7 across all schools in the Eastbourne area, including Hailsham and Seaford, encouraging those pupils with a real interest in science, technology, engineering and maths to participate. Schools will be entering teams of five pupils to present projects on sustainable STEM solutions to global issues such as clean water, air pollution and renewable energy sources.

We are grateful to TEVA Pharmaceuticals for their support and to STEM Sussex and the Association for Science Education for their involvement. We would also like to thank Eastbourne College for providing the Birley Centre as a state-of-the-art venue. Lead teachers in science are also invited to take part in a training session on Thursday 19 January to provide some project ideas.

We are also keen to hear from local companies that would be willing to provide prizes for our draw during the event. If you would like to find out more then please contact the school or add a comment below. We will tell you more about the Conference in the New Year.
