A Liverpool University taster day offered year 9 maths students fantastic STEM-related enrichment.
Fourteen year 9 students headed off to the University of Liverpool’s Faculty of Science and Engineering at the beginning of January to take part in a special STEM taster day organised by the university’s outreach team.
The students, who all show a particular aptitude for STEM-related learning (science, technology, engineering and maths), took part in three sessions during the day:
As Ridgeway’s headteacher, one of the things I am proudest of is the incredible range of enrichment opportunities we make available for students — extra-curricular clubs, Ridgeway Charter activities and challenges and so on.
I am sure these students had an amazing time. It will have given them experience of learning in a university environment as well as providing fantastic STEM-related enrichment.Mr Sterry
