Overview of AfRIS STEM Clubs

What is AfRIS STEM Clubs?

The Astronomy for Remote and Island Schools STEM Clubs Project (AfRIS STEM Clubs) is a Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) funded public engagement project to establish and manage a mobile outreach team to support the provision of astronomy-related STEM Club activities to schools located in some of the UK’s more remote and island communities.

During the project’s 24-month lifetime, the AfRIS team will directly support 15 to 20 remote/island schools in running a STEM Club for their pupils through a combination of face-to-face visits, club leader training, online tutorials, and remote support. The STEM Clubs will involve an extensive range of activities as detailed in a set of STEM Club Booklets created by our colleagues at the National Schools’ Observatory.
