The Smallpeice Trust Summer Courses See High Demand, Limited Spots Remain

The Smallpeice Trust, a UK-based educational charity, has reported a surge in enrollments for its upcoming summer courses focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Over 650 students have already registered, accounting for 73% of available slots. The trust urges interested students to secure their spots before the courses reach capacity.

“The response has been incredible,” said Chris Lowery, head of programs at The Smallpeice Trust. “It’s clear that young people are eager to dive into hands-on STEM learning experiences, and we’re thrilled to provide that opportunity.”

The Smallpeice Trust is a British charitable organization dedicated to fostering young people’s interest in engineering and supporting their development in STEM fields. Founded in 1966 by Dr. Cosby D P Smallpeice, a renowned engineer and inventor, the trust was established with a significant portion of his personal fortune. The trust’s mission is to provide young people aged 10 to 18 with the necessary support and resources to pursue their passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through collaborations with like-minded organizations, top universities, institutes, and corporate companies, The Smallpeice Trust offers a range of programs, including residential courses, STEM days, STEM clubs, and STEM teacher training days, to inspire and nurture the next generation of engineers and innovators

The trust offers diverse residential, day, and virtual courses held at various universities across the UK. The classes cater to students from Year 8 to Year 12 (or equivalent) in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Notable courses with limited availability include:

The trust emphasizes its commitment to inclusivity, with 40% of enrolled students identifying as female, 32% as male, and 1% as non-binary. “We strive to create a learning environment where everyone feels empowered to pursue their STEM passions,” Lowery added.

With approximately 20% of course places still available, The Smallpeice Trust encourages students to visit its website to explore the full range of offerings and register before the remaining spots fill.
