TrioSci Cymru Aberystwyth

Aberystwyth University will work with school pupils across the North and Mid Wales as part of a major Welsh Government initiative to boost take-up of STEM subjects.

Trio Sci Cymru is led by the Welsh Government’s National Science Academy, in collaboration with the Institute of Physics, Bangor, Swansea, Aberystwyth and Cardiff universities.

The £8.2m project which is backed by £5.7m of EU funding and £2.5m from the Welsh Government’s National Science Academy, aims to increase take up and grades in STEM subjects among young people living in North and West Wales and the South Wales Valleys.

Over a three-year period, the University hopes to engage with 1,500 key stage three pupils; offering a range of engaging Physics and Biology workshops.

In total, the Trio Sci Cymru programme aims to encourage more than 5,600 young people aged 11 to 14 from 30 schools across Wales to study STEM subjects at GCSE level and beyond, helping to create a skilled workforce and a prosperous economy.
