Sciences, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Award

Sponsored by BAE Systems

The Scottish Education Awards recognise early learning and childcare settings and schools that have developed a vibrant and progressive culture and climate of continuous innovation.

The culture and ethos should promote respect, ambition and achievement while improving outcomes for all learners in ways which eliminate inequity.

For your nomination to be considered, you are required to respond to the statement above and in detail to the following questions. This should include practical activities and projects your educational setting has undertaken, detailing the impact these strategies have had on pupils, staff, parents and the community.

  • In what ways do learners in your educational setting demonstrate successful application of STEM skills?
  • In what ways are learners using STEM to develop skills for learning, life and work?
  • In what ways do you work with partners/parents/wider community to support STEM?
  • How is STEM supporting the four contexts for learning (curriculum, inter-disciplinary learning, ethos and life of the school and opportunities for personal achievement)?

What are the outcomes of these approaches in terms of impact on:

  • children and young people
  • the whole school or setting community
  • the wider community
