University of Hull
A top Chinese school has chosen East Yorkshire as a centre of excellence for studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Seventy primary school students from Beijing took part in events and activities at the University of Hull, Hymers College and Hornsea School. The visit has been organised by UK STEM – a company which works with schools and industry to promote STEM and to prevent a huge shortfall of engineers in the UK. The company has also set up Global STEM Awards to boost pupil participation from primary age onwards.
