Video stories

Our research reports and projects always have a ‘so what?’ factor about them. We have taken this talent and in partnership with Major Minor Media have produced a series of video stories to encapsulate the learning from projects and events.

Katalytik was commissioned by the South East Hub of the National HE STEM project to produce a series of project summaries. The HE STEM website will be live for five years after the project ceases.

Tips and tricks for making online lectures

Students want access to lecture contact 24/7 and the Chemistry Department at the University of Southampton embraced this by creating a range of support materials. Supported by the HE STEM programme they shared their expertise through workshops and in this film offer some tips to help you plan and create your own on-line content. Find out more…

Set to Lead – supporting female undergraduates

The London & South East Spoke of the National HE STEM Programme funded the SET to Lead project to address the differences in transition rates between male and female engineering and technology students into relevant jobs.

The project was informed by:

  • dialogue with engineering and management academics
  • discussions with employers
  • online survey of over 4,500 students

The project developed three industry based scenarios and associated videos of engineering leaders and their leadership insights. The scenarios were designed and shaped ThoughtWorks, the Highways Agency and Arup.

This video covers the learning that shaped the project.

Generating Genius

Based at University College London, Generating Genius works alongside a wide range of partner schools and universities, with hundreds of high-achieving children and young people from challenging backgrounds where there has been no tradition of entry to higher education. Through personalised support programmes, the aim to enable at least 90 per cent of participants to win places at elite Russell Group universities. Further information

Insights to engineering in the energy sector for teachers

Science teachers could be a mine of information about science based careers. Courses aimed at providing careers information though, are most likely to attract careers teachers. Science Learning Centre South East, working with National Grid, has created a workshop model illustrating the science and challenges in the energy sector and provided exciting and usable resources that offer insights into jobs.

In this film the workshop creators and teachers talk about the different elements of the day and the learning highlights. Useful for teachers and others planning outreach days for science, maths and D&T teachers as well as STEM Ambassadors. Find out more…
