The fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are becoming increasingly important year upon year. In 2018, four of the top five global brands operated in the field of technology. With recent studies projecting STEM job growth to exceed 10% in the coming decade alone, British Council is launching its young learner STEM Club.
STEM Club gives our young learners (aged 8-13) a chance to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths related concepts in a fun and accessible way.
