“I really enjoyed the virtual STEM. I liked the range of activities and had fun with the family doing some of the challenges. It was helpful, I learned a lot about university and what to expect.”
"It was fun, the challenges were great! I am sad that next year I will be in year 11, so I can't participate but I will encourage people in my school to take part."
"The most interesting thing I learned about STEM was the math challenge, I didn't realise how much organisation went into even the simplest of tasks like cutting down a tree."
“I enjoyed learning about why certain people wanted to go to university and how it helped them achieve their dreams.”
