Geared Up For STEM

#STEM - #Environment - #CSR- #GreenSkills - #DigitalSkills - #CorporateSocialResponsibility - #Education - #CommunityValue

Geared Up for STEM is an innovative corporate social responsibility and STEM engagement education programme, funded by the GFG Foundation and developed by Rewise Learning. It has worked with over 300 young people in every comprehensive school in Newport. Our goal was to increase inclusivity in STEM and bring STEM learning to every community in the area. Participants learnt about coding, electronics and design to build their own Bluetooth-controlled model race cars to compete in fun race challenges.

About the Project

What we did

  • Funded by the GFG Foundation, conceived, and delivered by Rewise

Value Created

Like many countries, the UK is suffering from a skills gap - a tech-savvy workforce is needed to cope with industrialisation and there is a huge shortage of young people going into STEM careers. To increase uptake of STEM subjects we need to excite young people and show them everyone can enjoy and take part in STEM education. Geared Up for STEM engaged with young people from a variety of backgrounds and underrepresented groups, aiming to ignite an interest in STEM, increase the uptake of STEM subjects at higher education levels and promote economic prosperity through high quality STEM employment options.

Promoting STEM learning and careers plays a crucial role in fostering inclusivity and diversity. Historically, there has been a shortfall of women and underrepresented groups in STEM fields. By actively encouraging and supporting these groups to pursue STEM education and careers, we can create a more inclusive and diverse workforce, help to address gender and racial disparities, promote equality, and harnesses the power of diverse perspectives in driving innovation.
