Through collaborative, hands-on exploration of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) ideas, creative activities – such as story-telling and rock painting – and engagement with the local environment, Strathclyde’s STEM summer school provided an ideal environment for shared learning. Working with young people with additional support needs, we were able to gain the important perspectives of these citizens as they learned about our many research projects that aim to enhance environmental sustainability.
