STEM experience courses at university for 16-17 year old students.
If you're thinking about studying science or engineering at university but you're not sure which type of engineering or which science discipline you'd enjoy most, then the solution may be to go on a taster course to find out more.
Visit the Headstart website to find out more. They have a full programme of courses ranging from broad based engineering taster courses to specific discipline courses on different engineering and science disciplines from Aeronautical Engineering to Oceanography.
Most courses are open to boys and girls but EDT also offer their Girls Only - Insight into Engineering Course. The course, run at Salford University and endorsed by WISE, has helped a great many girls make that first step into an engineering career.
One of the students from Headstart 2013 has written about her experience. Read her blog.
