2016/17 Annual Review published
The 1851 Trust is delighted to present our first Annual Review.
The Trust has now delivered a full academic year of our core education-based programmes;
- BT STEM Crew, the online curriculum-linked resource for teachers of 11-16 year olds
- Hosted school visits to the TECH DECK and Education Centre at the Land Rover BAR base in Portsmouth
- Our first multi-activity national roadshow
The Trust aims to inspire and engage young people to a better future by providing them with the education and opportunities to become innovators of the future and stewards of the marine environment.
We have made significant progress towards achieving this ambition during the past academic year, with over 750 teachers now registered for our BT STEM Crew platform and 100% citing the resources as “high-quality” in a recent survey. These resources have been used to teach science, maths, engineering and design & technology to over 29,000 students this year.
2,900 young people from 81 different schools have visited the TECH DECK & Education Centre for an interactive, behind-the-scenes experience learning about the application of new technologies, testing their own ingenuity in a curriculum-linked workshop and finding out about the exciting range of roles available at Land Rover BAR. 9/10 teachers said the visits were “good or excellent” for enriching the curriculum being taught in school.
In addition, nearly 2,000 young people have experienced a ‘combined programme’, learning about sustainability, STEM and sailing and a further 5,700 took part in hands-on activities delivered by the Trust at events, or through our partners.
We have been delighted by the feedback from teachers and students on the positive impact that our programmes have on engagement with STEM subjects, enthusiasm for new career opportunities and aspirations for the future.
