Steam School

Preparing young innovators for careers in science and technology.

Steam School hosts a weekly live broadcast with innovators from the world of science, tech & digital media for #TALKTECHTHURSDAYS.  By showcasing the stories of young innovators, and discussing tech trends and scientific breakthroughs, Steam School inspires young people to raise their aspirations and to develop a new awareness about how rapid technological change is transforming the world in which we live.  At the end of each broadcast, our members are invited to complete a weekly mini challenge using their innate creativity and problem solving skills in a real world context.

Launched at the beginning of January 2018, Steam School has broadcast a wide variety of STEAM role models including US based Astronaut Abby, Craig Fenton, Director for Strategy and Operations at Google UK & Ireland, Pepper the Companion Robot, Rob Bennett, Chief Inspirer at BLOODHOUND SSC and digital entrepreneur,  Hannah Anderson, co-founder of Social Chain.

“Me and my 11-year-old son tuned in to the Steam School broadcast to listen to Rob Bennett this afternoon and it was AWESOME! My son is still talking about it now! Seriously, we’ve had to look up why woodpeckers don’t get headaches and find pictures of the flattest place on Earth! I don’t hold out a lot of hope for a quiet bedtime tonight.”
