Youth STEM

12 Sep 2019
Platinum Suite Level 3
People and Skills Day
The Royal Air Force has long recognised the importance of encouraging more young people to study STEM subjects, and to ultimately consider a career in engineering. Understanding that any meaningful change in this regard will only happen with sustained, targeted engagement, early enough to challenge unhelpful stereotyping and bias, the RAF Youth STEM programme targets students from early primary to age 14. From a modest beginning in 2008, the programme is now one of the largest, longest running, and most wide-ranging youth engagement programmes in the UK, delivering hands on STEM interventions and curriculum mapped resources, with the support of partners from Academia, Industry and a range of Professional Bodies.
