The STEM partner’s role is to actively engage and work with the students during the running of the project. The partnership is designed to give students an opportunity to learn from STEM professionals and see the range of potential career opportunities. Whilst also being an opportunity for the STEM partner to develop skills in school engagement and for a long-term sustainable relationship to develop between the school and STEM partner.
