The Stemline System is a new multi-use learning environment. It provides a contemporary and stimulating learning environment to integrate STEM skills across the curriculum.
Creating a flexible learning environment
Stemline combines fully serviced fitted benching required for science, smart contemporary semi or un-serviced mobile workstations for IT, design and academic study, with the heavy duty build quality essential for Technology and Engineering.
The Stemline environment can be created by a mix and match of different options. Serviced perimeter benching and fume cupboards can facilitate biology and chemistry, teaching walls can double up as resource bases and focal points for discussion and full class address. Moveable workstations can be reconfigured to facilitate different student groups working on different project elements at the same time but within the same space and the clean but heavy duty semi serviced workstations are equally suited to design, planning, evaluation and work with machine tools and resistant materials.
The Stemline multi-use learning space combines a laboratory, design studio, a maths classroom with a clean, contemporary technology and engineering workshop.
Some of the Stemline workstations include features for specific applications such as the cable management tray and brush seal feature on the IT workstations, but all are designed to be multi-use. For example, the IT workstation is sized and has the load bearing capability to deal with the weight and vibration caused by and to be used with machine tools. Realisation workstations can be supplied flat or with a surface infill to create a flat multi-use area.
Meeting the need for STEM skills:
Demand for STEM skills is strong across the economy and is set to grow in the coming years. STEM study will continue to unlock an array of opportunities for young people at every skill level.
Among those organisations that need employees with STEM skills and knowledge, employers of every size struggle to find the STEM talent they require:
- 42% of those firms needing STEM skills report they have difficulty in recruiting STEM-skilled staff at some level
- 23% currently face difficulties in meeting their need for experienced staff with expertise in science, technology, engineering and mathematics
- 17% report problems in finding suitable graduates
- 13% say it is hard to find people with STEM skills to train as apprentices
- 45% anticipate difficulties over the next three years
Studying science and mathematics unlocks a range of employment opportunities for young people across the economy. Success in promoting science and mathematics to your people depends on high-quality teaching delivered by subject specialists.
