Droitwich Spa High School awarded STEM grant to transform workshops

DROITWICH Spa High School has secured a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) grant from the Millennium Point Charitable Trust.

The grant will be spent on equipment for turning four workshops into interactive and equipped spaces in the school’s design and technology and engineering department.

The traditional workshop areas will be equipped with digital technology and learning resources to enable a multi-disciplinary and modern approach to designing and problem solving.

Droitwich Spa High was one of a number of recipients and among other projects were building a fully-operational light aircraft, STEM training toolkits and a car engineering workshop for girls.

Abbie Vlahakis, CEO of Millennium Point said: “After an incredibly challenging 18 months which saw our events and exhibitions programme massively hit by the pandemic, it’s wonderful that we’ve still been able to support so many great STEM-related initiatives.

“Every year the quality and volume of applications that the Millennium Point Charitable Trust receives is phenomenal, and this year is no exception; we can’t wait to see how the successful projects unfold in the coming months.”

The next round of applications for 2022 opens tomorrow, Monday, October 4.
