How can The Smallpeice Trust help your organisation to inspire young people take up careers in STEM? One way is by sponsoring a Think Kit which helps bring STEM subjects to life for up to 20 students.
A Smallpeice Trust Think Kit comes with the tools and resources to start or help sustain a STEM Club for up to 20 students in a school. Each kit complements the National Curriculum in science, technology, engineering and maths and lets teachers bring these subjects to life in new ways.
Our Think Kits are even more vital during these challenging times when many students are behind in their education. Research shows that the impact of the pandemic has affected the most vulnerable students the hardest. Those from disadvantaged backgrounds often remained shut out when their schools closed for a third of the academic year.
We urgently need additional sponsors to help us reach more young people who are behind in their education and who would benefit most from a hands-on project to develop invaluable skills in resilience, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
For 50 years The Smallpeice Trust has been giving young people everything they need to fuel their passion for engineering. It all started with our founder, Dr Cosby Smallpeice, a brilliant engineer that invented the Smallpeice Lathe.
