STEM Charter

What is STEM?

“STEM” is an acronym for subjects relating to science, technology, engineering and maths. It’s more than just a subject you learn in school. STEM encompasses a lot of what we do in our day-to-day lives. Whether it’s the devices we use, the machinery we operate or the routines we maintain, most of us are heavily involved and impacted by STEM (whether we think it or not). However, STEM skills are in short supply.


Together we can help change that.

What is the STEM Charter?

The STEM Charter is designed to promote STEM education and STEM as a career choice within the West Midlands. By signing up to the charter you are joining an increasing number of schools, universities, charities, STEM learning providers who wish to demonstrate their commitment to the importance of promoting STEM education and STEM as a career choice to the West Midlands economic growth and development for the future.
