Engineers, scientists, mathematicians, and people with technological skills are vital to Scotland’s economic success. They are key to transforming lives for the better and finding the solutions to the challenges and opportunities which climate change and digital transformation present.
Our Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland (YESC) programme provides support for teachers and business and industry alike. It develops and delivers exciting hands-on activities which help young people understand the challenges and involve them in creating the solutions. YESC reaches pupils of all ages in primary and secondary schools to support the delivery of key government initiatives including STEM, digital strategies, and gender balance. YESC’s work focuses on areas of high social deprivation, rural isolation as well as girls, young women, and diverse groups underrepresented in the STEM sector.
YESC interdisciplinary projects – accompanied by resource kits and teacher CPD courses – enable teachers to tackle challenging STEM concepts through engaging activities. Supporting pupils to develop valuable skills and knowledge while encouraging uptake in STEM subjects and careers.
Our annual STEM challenge gives Clubs a practical platform to explore a topical theme, and our Celebration events bring schools together from across Scotland. Giving pupils a chance to showcase their work to industry experts, take part in a range of challenges and meet those working in the STEM sector to learn about the exciting career opportunities available.
