Children taking part in a STEM project and putting together a circuit board with lego


Encouraging young people to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects


Our team of dedicated employees are committed to supporting STEM initiatives and coordinating STEM activities around the world to inspire the next generation. By enabling young people to discover how core subjects apply to the real world to solve the complex problems of the future, STEM can inspire the next generation to broaden their horizons when considering future careers.

This space is dedicated to all things STEM. See below upcoming and past events that we have participated in plus a selection of activities designed for children of all ages to take part in. These are not only fun but can help spark a lifelong interest in a STEM subject area and potentially even start them on the path to a STEM career!

Come and meet us

Thursday 22nd June, HMS Sultan, Gosport, UK

We will be taking part in an exciting open day onboard HMS Sultan in support of the STEM event 'SULSTEMIC 23'.  In the region of 240 pupils from local schools in Gosport, Fareham and the Isle of Wight (aged 8 - 10) will be introduced to STEM disciplines from a range of industry partners.  We will be attending and will showcase our naval architecture capabilities, inviting pupils to make and design origami boats.

Past events

Encouraging and inspiring young people to discover STEM subjects.

Bristol Harbour Festival

We had had to assemble a boat entirely out of cardboard and compete in a 200m boat race in Bristol Harbourside.

Roman Bath Festival of Lights

We supported the Roman Baths in creating a magical evening of floating tealight boats upon the Great Bath.

Virtual Reality showcase

Engineered in Bath

We were part of the alliance that played a role in the design and construction of two aircraft carriers – HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales. We joined fellow UK Naval Engineering, Science & Technology members to celebrate the successful completion of the second aircraft carrier. The event featured a range of STEM activities. We had 20 engineers in attendance and our Virtual Reality capability was popular with visitors, including Jeremy Quin MP, Minister for Defence Procurement.

We took part in the 'Engineered in Bath' exhibition at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, UK which showcased hardware and software products from exciting and cutting-edge engineering companies in modern Bath.

We challenged young adults to make and design paper origami boats to be displayed in an art installation.

Imagineering, Royal Bath and West Show

In the Imagineering Marquee, we ran activities alongside the Royal Navy, Army, DSTL, IET and more. Many foam boats were made and tested as the event hosted approximately 20,000 children and their families over a busy Jubilee weekend.

Race for Life

We visited Three Rivers Academy in Walton-on-Thames, UK to introduce Year 7 students to aerodynamics. We challenged them to make and race minature cars or boats that were NOT aerodynamic so they could understand 'what not to do' for the a competition they were taking part in called 'Race for Life', organised by the Learning Partnership.

LEGO League

The First LEGO League is a global science and technology challenge for teams of students aged nine to sixteen, seeing schools from across the South West compete against each other. Our Senior Engineers Andrew Shirley and Simon Newman judged teams on their ability to research a given topic, create a presentation and design, build and programme a LEGO robot to solve a series of missions. The concept for the year's competition was 'City Shaper' and was themed around architecture and the spaces in which we live.
