The In2science summer programme
The 2023 In2science summer programme will offer Year 12 students the opportunity to participate in both online and in-person activities, helping them to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to take the next steps in their STEM journey.
The programme consists of:
- A practical, hands-on work experience placement hosted by STEM professionals, connecting students to experts working at the cutting edge of research and innovation.
- Online skills, employability and careers workshops throughout the summer, connecting students with like-minded peers and experts, sharing knowledge, and helping students with their next step towards university, apprenticeships and a STEM career.
- Public engagement competitions with prizes, giving students the opportunity to showcase their creative side and communicate what they have learnt on their work experience placement.
The programme will take place from Monday 24th July to Friday 25th August 2023 and placements will be held within a commutable distance of where students live.
Before the In2science summer programme begins, students will be invited to an induction event sharing key information about the programme. In early autumn, they’ll attend a fun celebration event, recognising and celebrating everything they have achieved on the programme.
Students will also automatically gain access to our Alumni Community after completing the programme, joining a network of over 2000 members, and having the opportunity to explore additional online workshops, monthly newsletters, scholarships opportunities, events invitations and more.
The In2science summer programme is free to take part in. We will also provide students with a bursary to cover travel and lunch costs during their work placement.

What is STEM?
The simple answer is, pretty much anything that involves Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths! And it can often come in surprising places; from games design to international development, medical research to sports performance analysis, it’s used in developing your favourite snacks and in the chemistry in your favourite smelling shampoo. STEM is quite literally everywhere, so we highly recommend applying for the programme, and you never know where it might take you.
