Education Scotland programme inspires pupils into STEM

More than 160 primary five pupils attended a STEM fair, organised by the RAiSE (Raising Aspirations in Science Education) programme which aims to increase the confidence, skills and networks of teachers in STEM education to motive and inspire learners.

Pupils within the Lochaber High School catchment area shared displays of their own class learning and spoke to local employers about local STEM careers.

A spokesperson for the RAiSE programme said: “The Lochaber STEM Fair provides a wonderful opportunity for young people, teachers and the local community to come together and inspire, excite and learn from one another about how STEM impacts the region.”

The event was run by the RAISE team operating in the Highland local authority and was held at Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Loch Abar.

RAiSE is a programme of Education Scotland, The Wood Foundation, Scottish Government and participating local authorities.
