STEM at RGS Worcester

Preparing for the future

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) places an emphasis on preparing pupils for their future careers.  The skills gained from STEM extend beyond those needed to be successful in related fields, preparing pupils to move into industry by gaining a valuable skill set that allows them to be successful in a range of future careers

preparing pupils to move into industry by gaining a valuable skill.

Hands-on learning with real-world applications

STEM-based learning at RGS teaches pupils more than Science and Mathematic concepts; it offers hands-on learning with real-world applications.

Pupils from Year Seven onwards develop a variety of skills, including creativity, flexibility, communication, decision-making, leadership and initiative; all combining to develop the engineers of the future.

STEM at RGS extends beyond the Science Department and encompasses:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Design and Technology
  • Computing and IT
  • Mathematics

RGS Worcester Sixth Form offers a range of STEM based A Level subjects for students to choose from in order to prepare them for Higher Education or a STEM based Apprenticeship.

IET Faraday Challenge Day

Year Eight pupils from RGS Worcester, Nunnery Wood School, Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, The Chantry School and RGS Dodderhill participated in the 2023-24 Institution of Engineering and Technology’s IET Faraday Challenge Day (FCD). The IET Faraday Challenge is an annual competition that introduces pupils to engineering, inspiring them to consider engineering as a career and helps to develop their practical and employability skills, including team working, problem solving and creative thinking. This year’s challenge is in association with Rees Jeffreys Road Fund and National Highways. Teams must race against the clock to solve a real-life engineering problem, putting their engineering and technology knowledge and skills to the test. Read the full article.

Gets young people enthusiastic about science and engineering by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car.

We supply age-appropriate Kit Cars, which can be built in school, college or elsewhere and raced at motorsport venues at Greenpower organised events. Alternatively, older participants can design and build their own car to our regulations. The Greenpower challenge uses the excitement of motorsport to inspire young people to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Read the article.
