STEM

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects at Brentwood School are essential in providing pupils with key skills in challenging topics.

We encourage students to become involved in STEM education to understand and explore the academic subjects further and increase interest in careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

STEM Club

STEM Club combines the four subjects in to one, helping to provide pupils with vital knowledge in today’s society, such as an understanding of real-world technology and economic development.

The Brentwood School STEM Club provides pupils with projects to improve problem solving, competitiveness and creative and critical thinking skills.

Activities and projects take place each term. A list of current STEM activites taking place this term can be found below.
