Exceptional summer school in STEM at Royal Hospital School

The STEM subject areas (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) are the core pioneers of humankind’s voyage into the future.

This programme will shine a light on emerging technologies and their future impact on societies throughout the world. Participants will explore future-minded content and learn what opportunities will present themselves over the next decade and how they can be taken advantage of.

Overview
Academic

Innovative Material

The key question this programme asks is ‘how do ambitious young people prepare for careers that don’t exist yet?’.

How would you describe a social media manager, VR developer or big data analyst to someone 10 years ago?

The Future Insights programme focuses on forward-thinking content that helps students develop well-rounded skills, whilst looking at potential careers available to them in 10 years time and beyond.

The course also puts huge emphasis on practical learning. Participants will be exposed to emerging technologies, and will gain hands-on experience learning how they work, including:

  • Building robotic vehicles

  • Operating drones

  • Exploring virtual reality

  • Racing sustainable vehicles
