Interested in a future in science but not sure which discipline to choose? STEM (short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is one of the hottest academic subjects of the 21st century, and here at Reach, we understand why. The Reach Cambridge STEM course combines hands-on learning with theoretical knowledge from each of STEM’s four key areas to set students up with information from which they can investigate and discover themselves.
The Reach Cambridge STEM course combines hands-on learning with theoretical knowledge from each of STEM’s four key areas to set students up with information from which they can go on to investigate and discover themselves. In our STEM courses, as a part of academic enrichment, students are exposed to the latest scientific innovations, and to the research and development work that is carried out before a product/test is released into the market. Ideal for students who are curious about how the world works . STEM at Reach is ambitious, exciting, and inspiring, without being intimidating. Come to the academic home of Newton, Darwin, Hawking, Ramanujan, Oppenheimer and so many more. With our qualified and inspiring STEM tutors, discovering the world of science is now more exciting and accessible than ever.
Check out some of our other courses below!
Architecture: Hands-on learning accompanies theoretical introductions and fully tailored walking tours in this one of a kind architectural immersion. Learn to sketch, model, analyze and critique as real architects do and get an insider’s scoop on one of the most fascinating cities in the world. From the inside out and the outside in, our buildings house us, inspire us, and make our societies what they are. Biotechnology: Topics covered include genetics, drug resistance, pharmaceutical science, biotechnological devices, and drug design. Through lectures by experts in the field and hands-on practical sessions, students will be offered a unique insight into both the study of biotechnology at university and the vocational opportunities in the field beyond higher education. Computer Science: The Reach Cambridge Computer Science course is designed to equip students with everything they need to develop their programming, coding, and mathematical skills. Whether students are aiming to create bestselling smartphone apps or wish to become a leading software engineer, this course is the perfect way to take their first step in that direction.
Engineering: This course will give the students a theoretical overview of relevant concepts as well as hands-on experience in their application. By consideration of topics such as force, pressure, strength, stress, materials, aerodynamics, or fluid mechanics the students will explore the world of engineering and structures. In a series of projects and challenges, from bridge building to electronic circuits, the students will develop a range of skills necessary for a future engineer and through relevant lectures and classes they will learn the basics necessary for the engineering in practice.
Mathematics: By studying topics such as polynomials, differentiation, integration, matrices, probability, statistics, and game theory, they have a chance to enhance their theoretical understanding of the subject matter, build their confidence in their computational skills, and apply their abilities to real-world applications of maths in various fields. Students are also encouraged to think critically about equity in maths and science education around the world.
Medicine & Life Sciences: The course introduces students to a range of subjects taught by scientists at the cutting edge of biological and medical research, inviting them to explore the most interesting areas of medicine and life science such as anatomy, trauma & emergency, pharmacology, physiology, and biological and medical research.
Physics & Astronomy: Having produced the likes of Isaac Newton and Stephen Hawking, there’s no better place to study physics than at Cambridge. The Reach Cambridge Physics & Astronomy course introduces students to a range of subjects taught by scientists at the cutting edge of physics research, such as nuclear physics, particle physics, nanotechnology, astrophysics and relativity. Students are also taught the mathematical basis for many of these exciting topics, to help familiarise them with the basic logical principles at work.
Psychology: The course will touch upon a wide range of research areas such as cognitive psychology, behaviorism, social psychology, neuroscience, bio-psychology, psychopathology, and developmental psychology. If you have ever wondered how the brain works, how society influences the individual, why people obey others, how the mind develops through childhood, or what constitutes personality, this is the course for you.
