Fusion STEM are delighted to be part of Bring it On this year as we feel it is important that pupils of all ages and backgrounds are given the opportunity to engage with local STEM industries through events like this.

FUSION is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) communication and consultancy company set up in July 2013 with the aim of connecting the world with STEM. The team is led by Director Claire Willis, who has over 20 years experience in this sector.

Aware that the North East STEM industry is moving fast which means up to date STEM skills are becoming increasingly more important. FUSION aims to safeguard and develop the workforce of the future by enthusing and supporting young people, teachers, parents and the wider community through their events and activities. Events include delivering professional development for teachers to help them to enthuse and engage young people in the STEM subjects, offering after school science clubs, delivering national programmes such as the Polar Explorer programme via STEM Learning, CREST Awards on behalf of the British Science Association  and Nuffield Research Placement scheme a programme run by the Nuffield Foundation as well as providing consultancy to local industries on their outreach programmes.

It gives students not only an opportunity for extra curricular learning but a real insight in to the types of careers that are available in this region and also the skills required.
