Inspiring Young Minds to Open up to STEM

Added Wednesday, February 22 2017

Twice a year, Catalyst Inc and Matrix, the Northern Ireland Science Panel, work with industry, government and education to publish a STEM Courses and Careers Supplement which is aimed to provide information to pupils, teachers and parents about the career opportunities and pathways.

The latest supplement was published on 14th February in the Irish News and News Letter.

The STEM Supplements are set against the context of the importance of the STEM industries to the local economy and the importance of increasing the numbers of skilled workers with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) qualifications.

Packed full of information they include profiles from a range of industries covering the diversity of jobs and education pathways along with articles from Industry and a range of educational providers.

The timing of the supplements are designed to coincide with the critical decision points in young people’s school-life.

The Supplements are a powerful tool to demonstrate the importance of STEM to the economy and to show the breadth of the STEM landscape. All the supplements that we have produced and all been very well received.

Supplements are available for download below
