Testimonials

We are pleased to work with a range of industry sectors and business leads as well as educators from across the world. Here’s what some of them have to say about our products and services:

  • Last summer, our year 5 pupils had Mike Cargill from UK STEM pay a visit to discuss renewable energy. He focused on wind turbines with the children. Mike provided some 3D model wind turbines that he had created. They worked brilliantly and the children enjoyed the lesson, where they measured the impact blade design had on efficiency, immensely. Pictures from his visit can also be seen on our school’s geography curriculum webpage. In addition, Mike asked children to design and then build a wind turbine. All of the resources were provided by Mike. The subsequent design was taken on a tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and we were even permitted to show children a PPT he had obtained from an Orsted spokesperson. I can’t speak highly enough of the work Mike did with the children.

  • “Mike has run the ‘H2 The Future’ hydrogen buggy activity for us in several secondary schools across the East Riding. It is an excellent programme that helps raise awareness among young people of the exciting opportunities emerging in the renewable energy sector, opportunities they could be part of. Mike’s passion for STEM and the way in which he delivers the content mean that young people can easily understand it. The students who took part thoroughly enjoyed building and racing the buggies, and the activity has helped them develop some really important employability skills such as problem-solving, creativity, teamwork, and resilience.”

  • I am thrilled to share that I’ve been featured in the UK STEM LIMITED Global STEM Award teaching resources! ✨

    Being part of a project that promotes STEM education and highlights the applications of solar power in our daily lives has been an incredible journey.

    I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a meaningful initiative. Let’s continue inspiring the next generation of STEM enthusiasts!

  • I’ve worked with Mike Cargill (UK STEM) on impactful and measurable offshore wind careers programmes for primary and secondary school students since 2012. Mike delivers ingenious and hands-on STEM initiatives that can be delivered in one day as part of broader programmes or integrated subject-based campaigns over two or more years ensuring sustainable impacts forstudents and teachers. For companies wanting a collaborative and meaningful approach to ensure quality schools engagement I’d highly recommend Mike and his team.

  • Based in Teesside, which is one of the UK’s biggest centres for hydrogen research and emerging industry, we are always looking for new ways to engage our students, both existing and prospective, with the new technologies.

    UKSTEM’s hydrogen buggies are perfect for this. They come in a kit so the students can build them, or if time is tight, we can use them to demonstrate. The versatility is great. We are using them for a demo on an Open Day, for an activity in Summer School, to supplement lectures on BEng Energy modules, and off site for school outreach sessions. They are easy to use, fun and come with great support. I’m so glad we got them – and now we have eight staff members trained to use them.
