STEM, an acronymn for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

STEM Aware is a company that delivers these curriculum subjects in a blended manner that allows students to relate to STEM in everyday life and the world around them. They are encouraged to think in a computational manner, to be innovative and creative in their designs, to problem solve and think outside the box, while employing mathematical skills throughout and of course having fun!

STEM Aware creates a connected learning platform that will enhance and enrich learning through interactive and creative assemblies, workshops, classroom lessons, after-schools clubs, summer schemes and community events, all with enthusiasm and immense enjoyment.

Through the progression of the business STEM Aware has achieved the development of STEM kits that can be sent to any location.

STEM Aware will get everyone to think like a scientist, operate like an engineer and play like a child!

Roisin Crawford

Roisin Crawford created STEM Aware to help engage children in a full and long lasting learning experience. With a background in Building Service Engineering, Roisin is passionate about education and STEM outreach work.

“Having four young children myself I wanted to learn how they learn, how could I support them as a parent, how could I do this better, this is what led me to where I am today. My children are so rich to have my industry experience at their disposal and hence as I shared this in their school, here the business began and it has since evolved into what it is today. We have grown in staff numbers, academic and industry experience, we have a great team work ethos and a real passion and joy for what we do.”
