Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)

As a major provider of STEM subjects at degree level, we recognise their importance to the UK's skills base. That’s why at Manchester we work with teachers and career advisers to inspire school learners with the exciting experiences and advantages of studying science.

Recent evidence indicates that the availability of special activities to support the take-up of STEM subjects in school and at university is having a really positive impact on the number of children opting to continue with science subjects at a more advanced level and beyond. 

STEM activities at Manchester

One-off activities include large-scale events as part of Manchester Science Festival and British Science Week, as well as smaller scale events that run throughout the year.

British Science Week

Each year the University runs a number of events to celebrate British Science Week. Activities take place across the University, including our four-day Science Extravaganza, where we welcome over 1,000 learners on to campus to learn about research taking place here.
