Who is this course for?

This 2 week course is for students aged 12-17 who will be able to learn and improve their English with topical lessons on current STEM themes. The course offers a combination of theoretical and practical lessons as well as partner workshops with an innovative tech company.


Course content

This course features 7.5 hours of STEM classes and project work each week. It is designed to help students improve their everyday English as well as their knowledge of science and technology.

Within their STEM classes, students will look at the big questions facing scientists and technology tycoons today. Will space tourism become the norm? What will replace bullet trains and driverless cars in the future? Is sustainability a realistic objective for society?

This will lead into practical workshops with our partners where students get more hands-on experience. Students will also have the opportunity to develop an app or game to solve a gap in the market or social issue. Students will present their ideas at the end of the final week.

All course participants will also have the opportunity to enter a writing competition in conjunction with National Geographic Learning to win some exciting prizes!
