University of the Highlands and Islands STEM Team

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Building Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) skills is vital to the future of the Highlands and Islands and we are committed to promoting STEM subjects and careers in the local area.
