A STEM school trip or workshop is a great way you can get your class excited about subjects like maths and science. Finding places that will welcome a school group is not too difficult, but finding somewhere that will really get them inspired, can be a challenge.

At PlanMySchoolTrip, we work hard to find school trip STEM venues that are run by people and organisations that really care about Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths. Whether you travel out to a local venue or they bring workshops to your school, children will get hands on experience with interactive exhibits, and take part in exciting shows, led by specialist educators.

If you are looking for school trip inspiration in any aspect of your STEM teaching, we can certainly help. Take a look at the excellent venues on this page – we work closely with every venue we feature, to make sure your trip will be a complete success. Feel free to complete the short enquiry form, and we will help you with your trip.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect STEM trip for your group.
