Research and teaching fellows from the University of Oxford and other research-intensive universities deliver a series of lectures across the scientific disciplines, whilst the Science Network also provides students from the northwest with the opportunity to visit regional laboratories - such as SuperSTEM at Daresbury - attend local 'Maths in Science' Spring Events, and attend a summer school at Corpus. The scheme aims to reach as many students as possible, with lectures particularly large in scale (places on lab visits and residential events are limited). Please scroll down for information on past events.

For more information please contact Fiona, Cheshire College South and West. The North West Science Network is part of Oxnet, an access initiative which places universities into the heart of local communities. More details about Oxnet and its projects can be found on its website https://www.oxnet.org/

2020's Remote STEMM Summer School will take place from Monday, 22nd June to Friday, 26th June.

What does the summer school involve?

North West Year 12 students from a range of schools travel down to Oxford on a coach for this free week of STEMM teaching and events. Accommodation, meals and transport are all covered for the week. Students receive a timetable on arrival, which contains a mixture of lectures from Oxford academics, tutorials,a group resarch project, a visit to the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy to see research scientists and the future of energy in action, plus free time in Oxford, workshops in laboratories and departments. Student ambassadors from Corpus studying a range of STEMM subjects are on hand throughout the week to help you with your project and talk to you about university life.
