The promotion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) has been established as an area of work within the current Programme for Government in Northern Ireland. As an element of this process the Department of Education has made funding available to undertake a range of activities and processes related to STEM. All schools are invited to apply as either an individual school, or as part of a cluster of schools working together. Any proposed STEM programme must run from 1 January 2009 to 31 March 2009. The purpose of the project will be to promote STEM with pupils and teachers in schools. For further detalils click here and here.
