STEMM Success for Aylsham High School

STEMM Success for Aylsham High School

 

Throughout this academic year, 5 students from Aylsham High School have completed the bronze level of the Youth STEMM Award (YSA). The Youth STEMM Award provides a focused and engaging framework for young people aged 13-18 to further their passion, knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.

Jamie Butcher, Chris Haslam, Cameron Payne, Joe Veriod and Luca Wedge-Clarke were all successful in achieving the award and were invited to the presentation evening at the Forum in the city centre. All of the students worked hard, both in and out of school hours to fulfil all of the required strands of the award. In order to pass students had to cover 10 hours in the following fields:

  •  Inspiring the next generation
  • Engaging the wider public
  • Developing your own skills and knowledge
  • Shaping your own future

 

The design and technology department has organised Aylsham’s participation in the award scheme and we look forward to building on its recent success. We are currently recruiting for new bronze students as well as supporting our bronze award winner, Joe Veriod (RM captain) in  his silver award next year.

If any students are interested please visit us in the Design and Technology department to receive further information or to enlist on the scheme.
