Watch their story unfold

“How better to explain what a career in STEM may be like than to set an exacting STEM challenge. FIRST Tech Challenge UK has everything from engineering, building to coding. But above all, seeing the students work together and support each other has been a very rewarding experience. And not just the students; this challenge has helped the Computing and D&T departments collaborate as part of a broader STEM initiative.
