What is the STEM X Experience?

It was two years in the making, but in 2016 we debuted a science teacher professional development program unlike any other — the STEM X Academy five-day residential program.

We wanted the experiences offered through the STEM X Academy — including the access we provide to cutting-edge science — to feed back and innovate students’ classroom experience into the future.

To achieve that goal, the STEM X Academy does something no other program does. Rather than providing science teachers with a package of resources to use in the classroom, we help them to acquire the skills and confidence to design, develop and implement their own STEM-based teaching resources.

Our aim is to equip teachers to better inspire and engage students, to draw on new science in the classroom and to provide fun, firsthand experience of the scientific method through inquiry-based learning.
