Thousands of new opportunities are anticipated in the Highlands and Islands over the next few years in sectors such as energy, life sciences and digital technologies.

To ensure our young people are in the best possible position to benefit from these opportunities, we need to inspire more of them to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

That’s what the Science Skills Academy is all about. With a network of inspirational STEM rooms, we are working with schools, employers and families to provide exciting and stimulating activities that engage young people and make them aware of the new opportunities coming their way.


Inspire:  Hands-on practical sessions are designed to excite and inspire students, and encourage them to study STEM subjects in the future



Opportunities: Students are introduced to the wide variety of STEM career pathways, both in the Highlands and Islands region, and beyond


Community: Each STEM Room works in partnership with local schools, communities and employers to ensure that local requirements are met and activities complement STEM industries in the community
