Cambridge LaunchPad enables young people to get hands-on experience within the STEM industry and apply what they learn in the classroom in a real-life setting.
Meeting inspiring role models gives students a great opportunity to learn more about the diverse range of careers available, as well as the different pathways into STEM, from university and apprenticeships to work experience.
When students reach the Innovator and Scholar levels, they will get the opportunity to work with other schools from across Cambridgeshire, which allows them to build on core skills such as teamwork and communication.
Get in touch if you’re looking for the chance to connect your students with leading STEM companies. We can help you show that STEM is for all!
How it Works
The programme will begin with a brief presentation at your school to introduce ourselves and the industry partner that the students will be visiting. Our industry partner will then host a Project Day that will give your students a chance to gain hands-on experience within a STEM field and build on what they may have learnt in the classroom.
We will then visit your students again to explore the retention and impact of the information they were presented with on their Project Day. We hope this will increase the likelihood that our interactions have a long-term, positive effect on their future.
