Our project STEM at SEA combines the experience of sailing a tall ship and immersion in the marine environment with a programme of activities that aims to strengthen confidence in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects.
To achieve this, a STEM Lead will deliver an educational curriculum, which combines theory with hands-on practical exercises, to the young people onboard. Some of the practical work will comprise of Citizen Science projects, which illustrate elements of ocean environmental science case studies and deliver valuable data to conservation and/or research organisations.
The chosen STEM lead will join the first voyage on the Pelican of London (our tall ship) on the 2nd of May 2022 till the 8th of May 2022. For the duration of their first voyage they will be onboard with our Head of Science, Dr Charlotte Braungardt (as we call her Charly), allowing Charly to train them, answer any questions and get a feel for a STEM at SEA voyage.
They will then rejoin for their second voyage on the 2nd of July 2022 till the 11th of July 2022. For this voyage, Charly will not be onboard, and the STEM Lead will be able to apply what they have learned in May and have the opportunity to independently lead the young people through the STEM curriculum.
Both voyages will start and end in the beloved Dublin, Ireland, allowing science projects to be carried out in sea areas around the British Isles and Ireland. The initial two days will be occupied by sail training and health and safety, leaving the remaining days for SYEM projects to be carried out. There may be an opportunity to undertake work while on anchor or on a beach, but for the majority of time, Pelican will be underway.
