STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects. At Ernest Bevin (and many other places) we also include Computing and Art. These subjects are all covered in our STEM Specialism.
Our STEM specialism means that as well as offering excellence in STEM curriculum subjects, pupils at the college are also given the opportunity to take part in a number of extra-curricular and cross-curricular STEM events. These include workshops and visit and lessons that draw on more than one STEM subject.
For example in 2018-19 Year 7 classes have taken part in a Thames Water Challenge Workshop and visited Kingston University’s Lab in a Lorry, Year 8 students have visited Battersea Power Station and Kingston University for a Forensic Science Day and a Programming Robots event, Year 9 students visited the Video Games exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Year 10 have visited the Thames Tideway Tunnel engineering project and taken part in a workshop run by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Year 11 students have been involved in the Science Stars widening participation programme mentored by St George’s University students to boost their Science GCSE grades and taken part in a Planet Pret sustainability workshop. Sixth Form students also took part in the Planet Pret workshop and have visit the Thames Tideway Tunnel, as well as having many STEM related careers events such as alumni talks and workshops led by the Institute of Grocery Distribution.
There are also a number of STEM clubs including Robotics Club, Computer Science Olympiad, Maths Club, STEM programming, Imperial College CREST award and STEM Crytography.
The college runs STEM days open to boys and girls from the community. To find out more click the link below
