Smallpeice Trust

The Smallpeice Trust is an educational charity that inspires young people to pursue careers in science and engineering through events and workshops.

With Amazon Future Engineer’s sponsorship, the Smallpeice Trust is offering STEM Day workshops in secondary schools.

  • STEM Days
  • Residential STEM camp bursaries
STEM Days are held in secondary schools, hosted by a Smallpeice Trust educator. They are designed to complement the national curriculum in science, technology, engineering and maths. Workshops last between one half and one full school day, and can accommodate up to 60 students.

In addition to the exciting and inspiring, themed STEM days workshops, secondary students get information about future career and higher/further education options, can put their creative thinking into action, and learn time management, team work, problem-solving, enterprise, personal and social skills.
On this five-day course, you will stay at the University of Southampton and interact with industry experts, gaining hands-on experience in computing and electronic engineering. The course is for Year 12 England and Wales, S6 Scotland and Year 13 Northern Ireland.

The course will be delivered by academics from the University of Southampton, one of the UK’s leading robotics centres, and generously sponsored by Amazon, the multinational technology company that focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, online advertising, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. Further support is provided by SourceBots, a not-for-profit organisation which runs robotics challenges for teenagers.

Amazon Future Engineer is sponsoring fully-funded places for residential programmes.
STEM Learning

STEM Learning is the UK’s largest provider of STEM education support and outreach, partnering with government, schools and companies like Amazon to provide world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK.

With support from Amazon Future Engineer, STEM Learning offers free continuing professional development courses for teachers and bespoke, long-term ENTHUSE Partnerships for schools.

At the heart of every ENTHUSE Partnership is a collaboration between 8-10 schools, supported by £25,000 worth of support over two years. Each partnership will develop a tailored two year action plan, including:
  • teacher CPD combining residential, local and online courses
  • free, curated and quality-assured resources
  • teacher placements in a STEM-related industry or university department
  • engaging with STEM Ambassadors to inspire young people
  • STEM Clubs to engage young people and develop practical skills
Amazon Future Engineer has provided funding for a number of ENTHUSE Partnerships.
It’s paramount that teachers are taught digital skills, especially given their importance at helping young people, prepare for the transition from school to employment and the wider world.

Digital skills stretch across all of STEM; with an ever increasing reliance on technology, understanding topics such as artificial intelligence can open many doors across each of the different STEM sectors. Developing excellent problem solving skills isn’t unique to any one of the STEM disciplines, cross-curricular teaching can support students develop their ability to quickly and efficiently solve problems.

With the UK’s Digital Strategy firmly embedded, the need for digital skills is growing, and so is our support for schools. Find out how you can support students to thrive digitally in secondary education through our offer.
