Keynote Talk - STEM – What, Why and How? A personal perspective from Kate Bellingham LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Although probably best known for her TV work, Kate’s background includes  Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths along with experience of teaching and of running a primary school STEM club.

Before looking at the role of STEM in primary schools, Kate will question what STEM actually means to the various stakeholders who may become involved or offer support. She will then consider the implications of under-representation of ‘Women in STEM’ in society as a whole, and the impact this may have on primary school teaching. She will also include a whistle-stop update of relevant research into STEM education, with particular emphasis on gender issues.
