The Headstart Inspire Programme for Year 11 students interested in STEM.
The courses are for year 11 girls who are interested in STEM subjects. The courses run for 3 days, most are residential (2 nights) and two are non-residential. They will meet like-minded students, whilst being introduced to engineering and/or science through a hands-on STEM project, lectures and workshops to give them an idea of what to expect at university. Within this they will learn how to manage a project, develop research techniques, problem solving and write reports. They will also get the chance to hear about university life from lecturers, admissions tutors, post-grad students, engineers, scientists, researchers and professionals.
The application process is on-line via http://www.etrust.org.uk/inspire-apply-here and you can find the most up to date list of Universities taking part here: http://www.etrust.org.uk/headstart/inspire-courses together with the costs.
