Bringing science to life for children of all ages

Children are born with a natural impulse to experiment and explore their way through life – and this starts in babyhood. Introducing science from an early age nurtures that instinct and ignites a healthy curiosity about the world around us and beyond.

Junior STEMM has been created by a global scientific society, founded by young scientists with a vision to make science come alive for children and their families in fun and accessible ways.

Fostering a lifelong love of science

Our mission is to introduce a broad range of science subjects to children of all ages, starting at just 2 years old, when toddlers start to develop memory and imagination. By capturing children’s passion for understanding their world and nurturing this through to adulthood, we’re able to equip our young people with the skills and attributes they’ll need to thrive in their future careers.

Junior STEMM will provide online resources and in person events for all pre-school, primary and secondary age children. These will be aligned with the National Curriculum STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programme and will include:

  • Science for babies
  • Toddler discovery
  • Junior experiments
  • A-Level preparation
  • Extra tutoring
  • Online events
  • In-person family events
  • Newsletters and subscriptions

As young people progress through school, we’ll offer support in further study from our expert tutors, followed by opportunities to engage with STEMM’s Global Scientific Society to further their education and expand their career choices.

If we can do it - so can you!

We want to boost your child’s confidence by helping them discover their talents, work with their strengths, and improve their skills alongside global scientific experts at exciting and inspiring events.

STEMM Junior is a science club for kids by STEMM Global Scientific Society.
It has been created by a visionary team of women scientists and enthusiasts who are passionate about promoting science based career paths and bringing new, emerging technologies to the next generation.

Founder STEMM Global

When I was a child, my grandmother called me “The Destroyer” because I was always taking things apart to see how they worked. The trouble was, sometimes the grownups couldn’t put them back together again!

I was lucky and grew up in a family of engineers and scientists so I was always experimenting and even built a laboratory in my bedroom.

In school I was really into Maths and Physics, so I followed what I loved best and took a science degree. At University many brilliant scientists inspired me to become a professor and establish my own research laboratory.

Some of my earliest – and happiest – memories are of spending time with my grandfather in his “man shed”, watching him build and create.

Both my parents were dispensing opticians and even from the ages of 3 or 4 I’d rather be with my father in the lab than with my friends in the sandpit. It’s no surprise I qualified in the same field.

Funnily enough, I was never that good at science at school, but I was always curious and never stopped learning.

I have always been inspired by Albert Einstein’s words: “Play is the highest form of research”. I knew this job was right for me when I realised that is exactly what STEMM Junior is trying to achieve.
