This week RS Components launched an education initiative called Imagine-X in an effort to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects in schools.
Imagine-X will assist teachers and educators in delivering STEM subjects, with free curriculum-aligned resources for pupils aged 7-14. It will also link dynamic, exciting STEM subjects with those who have used these skills before.
“STEM skills act as the perfect platform to a more socially mobile and globally impactful life – they broaden horizons, empower the disadvantaged and diversify life choices. But many young people have yet to see the bigger impact these skills could have on the world,” said Mike England, President, EMEA, RS Components.
The Imagine-X resources have been developed with help from primary and secondary school teachers, education experts and groups of students from key stages 2 and 3.
“We hope that Imagine-X will ignite the imagination of millions of young people in primary and secondary education,” added England.
