As we edge ever closer towards the end of the academic year. we hope that you can all (teachers, parents and students alike) look back on year and see how much progress has been made and feel proud of yourselves. For those of you who sat important exams this year (or helped students to prepare for them), we hope that all your hard work has paid off and you get the results your hoping for later on this summer.
The outreach team have, as always, had a very busy year. In the past month alone the team have led a planetarium roadshow in primary schools across Enfield, run three summer schools (including Pathways to Medicine and the Y11 STEM Challenge) - with more to come, hosted multiple chemistry taster days, had a busy weekend at The Great Exhibition Road Festival, hosted a dance production/workshop on microbiology and been on hand during the June open days!
In this edition of the newsletter we have a couple of fantastic opportunities for you to get involved in over the summer and beyond.

Tutors normally visit on a Wednesday afternoon for between 1 and 2 hours.
New London Architecture are hosting a STEM programme over the summer on designing cities.
Who are the people who make cities? From architects to engineers there are a huge range of people with the knowledge and skills need to design and build the places that we live.
In this hands-on practical workshop we’ll learn through designing our own plans for an area and learn more about how London’s development has been shaped by a huge range of talented citizens over its history.
