Are you involved in delivering Aviation STEM subjects in your Museum/Group?

 Do you want to deliver STEM but not sure where to start?


STEMing The Rot is a one-day conference, part of Aviation Heritage UK’s Stopping the Rot series, and explores how STEM is changing and discusses what tomorrow’s museum staff and volunteers might like to do.

STEM in Aviation is possibly one of the biggest growth areas for us in recent years. The Heritage Lottery Fund and many other funding providers now demand a STEM element in applications

Hear from a diverse range of speakers and have the chance to take part in discussions exploring:

  • different approaches to delivering STEM
  • how Museums and Groups can stay relevant and meet the needs of today’s curriculum
  • sharing STEM ideas and successes – and even a few things that didn’t go so well
  • how STEM fits in with funding applications
  • practical STEM ideas that you can use

This conference is for everyone who cares for STEM and it’s importance to young people from ages 4 to 16. It aims to showcase successes, inspire ways forward with sharing STEM ideas and promoting them to a wide variety of new and established audiences.
