STEMPOINT- INSPIRING THE SPACE EXPERTS OF THE FUTURE

Posted on February 6, 2024

STEMPOINT is an educational charity trusted by schools and community organisations in the East of England region for 40 years.

STEMPOINT acts as a bridge between education and STEM industry/business. Our aim is to inspire young people about Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) and encourage them to take up a career in STEM.

Why are we needed?  We want more young people to recognise the value of a STEM career and to be inspired to fulfil their potential.  In the East of England, we are fortunate to have a huge array of opportunities within various STEM sectors, but many employers report skills gaps and difficulty recruiting.  We believe young people need to be inspired to gain STEM skills, whatever their background and ambition for the future.  STEM education isn’t just about studying the right subjects at school; it’s about gaining the right mindset and skills for the workplace.  These skills are of vital importance for innovation and to support our economy, our country and our planet.  STEMPOINT can help broaden pupils’ horizons, showing the wide variety of jobs, careers and professions STEM offers.  We are grateful to the many volunteers who act as role models to help pupils visualise their future.

We provide insight and greater awareness of where STEM subjects could lead – by linking the world of work to the world of learning using the Gatsby Foundation benchmarks as a framework.

Inspiring the next generation

The Space Inspirations programme, sponsored by ESERO, is an initiative to attract more young people into STEM and the space industry, with the aim of supporting STEM Ambassadors to deliver successful interactions with young people, inspiring and encouraging the next generation of space professionals.  Could you help inspire young people with your own experiences?
