Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Due to the challenges associated with the pandemic, we will continue to provide STEM support through our dedicated online platforms. Our first priority remains the safety and well-being of our staff, students and programme participants.

Enrolment for our programmes this Autumn will continue as usual but there will be no face to face or on-campus visits until it is deemed safe to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we will continue to do the best we can to safely support all of our programme participants. Please contact the programme manager / Imperial visitor if you have any questions or concerns and check the website for updated information.

What does Imperial STEM Scholars involve?


STEM Scholars is a new Key Stage 3 programme that aims to inspire young people in KS3 to study STEM subjects through learning about coding, programming and the application of these skills in the sciences and engineering.


The programme consists of eight days of activity during 2020. Six days during the school Easter holiday, followed by a full weekend in June. Participants must be willing to attend all eight days of the programme to take part.

All sessions are held at our South Kensington Campus.

Programme dates:

Monday 6 April - Wednesday 8 April 2020
Wednesday 15 April - Friday 17 April 2020
Saturday 20 June – Sunday 21 June 2020

Each day will run 9.30 to 16.00pm at Imperial College London’s South Kensington Campus.

During the programme participants will gain valuable coding skills using the BBC micro:bit and other technologies.  The programme also aims to provide participants with a feel for university life as they work closely with Imperial academics and students.
