UCL Academy Learning to Make a Difference Together

STEM Specialism

Welcome to The UCL Academy's STEM specialism page. We strive to provide students with the best possible STEM experience within school, not only in London but nationally and internationally. Our aim is to prepare students for challenges, and to solve problems that don't even exist yet.

What is STEM?

We believe that coupling high quality education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths, and encounters with excellence leads to world class STEM education. These encounters are usually facilitated by our links with University College London (UCL), through our UCL Lecture Series, and high quality internships with leading industries and businesses such as Bechtel and Atkins Global. 

We believe in total equality of opportunity for all people in STEM. For example, traditionally Engineering and Computer Science has a poor uptake from women globally. In our self-directed curriculum we have the opportunity to study "learning to code" for girls. We hope these opportunities will ensure a strong and equal cohort of STEM literate students with a goal to change the world.

To see how we are achieving the various aspects of this ambitious goal, click the STEM specialism dropdown on the left, and make sure to check our STEM departments. I am also happy to speak to anyone interested in developing STEM provisions.
