How coke bottle rockets and motor-bike maintenance are helping disadvantaged youths.

Hands-on Science

In partnership with The Wellcome Trust we conducted a UK-wide exploration of the youth sector landscape and opportunities for using STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) to engage and support vulnerable young people. Whilst on the surface, the term 'STEM' feels academic and worlds apart from the lives of vulnerable young people, dig a bit deeper and it's clear that be it 'the rocket in a coke bottle' or taking motor-bikes apart and reassembling, science can be a successful engagement and learning tool. Check out our research report to find out more and a 'Bite-size' toolkit on how to engage youth workers in STEM!
