The Young STEM Leader Programme (YSLP) is an exciting new award that aims to spark greater interest and participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) among young people in Scotland.
Purpose of the award?
The key aim of the YSLP is to facilitate the development of peer STEM role models to inspire more young people to develop an interest in STEM.
As well as developing important personal skills that are increasingly in demand from employers, working through the programme will motivate the Young STEM Leaders (YSLs) to progress their STEM studies and potentially embark on a related career in STEM.
How can I Bike help pupils to achieve the award?
A number of I Bike activities focus directly on STEM topics and therefore can be utilised to support pupils’ achievement of this award.
