Oxford Brookes Study Higher
Rewise has helped Reach Higher, an Oxford Brookes funded organisation, to create and deliver bespoke STEM learning programmes. With the help of the Rewise team, students were able to craft and code their own remote controlled car which encouraged team building and boosted confidence all whilst helping the young people gain knowledge on higher education opportunities.
What is Study Higher?
Study Higher, an organisation backed by Oxford Brookes, targets young people in school years 9-13 to help them progress to high education and beyond. They typically focus on areas across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Swindon where there is typically lower progression to higher education. The organisation works with small groups to deliver interactive sessions to boost knowledge of high education options.
Study Higher approached Rewise Learning to help them improve the prospects of students wanting to learn STEM based subjects. We were able to create and deliver a session based on our STEM kit which allowed the students to learn in an engaging and fun way.
Study Higher and Rewise Learning Course
With our hands-on approach to STEM subjects, students developed coding skills and were able to see it used in a specific context. The students were given the task of creating a remote-controlled car that could be controlled through their smart phones. The knowledge and support were given by our team and Study Higher staff members which also provided motivation talks about the benefits and experience of university.
The workshop allowed the students to boost their team building skills whilst building their confidence in coding and building. The course was specifically designed alongside existing curriculum which made learning easier for the students. The participants gained increased knowledge of STEM subjects which could possibly progress to studying in higher education.
