More than events

Young people deserve to be inspired by the opportunities in STEM, in the same way they might a music festival or sporting event.

“The most rewarding moment has been seeing the passion, enthusiasm, and energy from the students. They’ve engaged in the task, adapted to overcome, and really put their heart and soul into the competition. It’s been breathtaking.”

Rob Leeman, Educational Solutions Manager, Arm
