Back to STEM

Loughborough Grammar School is the place to be for innovation and inspiration in STEM. Under the guidance of a STEM committee, with representatives from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Art, Computer Science and Design Technology (DT), opportunities abound to explore new ideas, create exciting projects and build 3D programs or worlds.

It is a commitment supported by a vast number of clubs, competitions, our STEM Sunday initiative and, of course, the very latest in software, robots and engineering. These include Lego Mindstorms, BBC Microbits, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, advanced VR, AR, combined UNITY software and 3D printing.

As students complete projects for different schemes they have the  opportunity to enter their project or research papers for Bronze, Silver or Gold CREST awards.
