The Smallpeice what?

We’re The Smallpeice Trust – an energetic independent charity providing exciting programmes to promote engineering careers to young people through Residential courses, Science,Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Days, STEM Clubs and STEM Teacher Training days.   

STEM Days take place in-school and provide a short introduction in engineering for students in Years 6 -11 where students work on design-and-make projects. Residential courses take students in Years 8 -12 interest in engineering further by exploring areas such as Structural and Railway Engineering. STEM-in-a-Box kits provide teachers with everything they need to set up a STEM Club for twenty Year 8/9 pupils.Our Teacher Training Days help teachers to enhance their delivery of STEM in the classroom.
