Nelson and Colne College STEM Assured ceremony

Nelson and Colne College received their STEM Assured award at a ceremony today (Thursday 12 Oct). NEF CEO Professor Sa'ad Medhat presented the award with a science-themed flourish - by lifting plaque from a vat of liquid nitrogen!

STEM Assured is a unique, industry-led recognition of outstanding quality and engagement in Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths education. Conferred by NEF, the award has a particular focus on industry relevance and embedding STEM skills across a range of learning areas.

Lancashire-based Nelson and Colne became just the sixth UK College to achieve the prestigious standard earlier this year, and received recognition of their achievement at Thursday’s ceremony. To mark the occasion, the College held a STEM themed exhibition in the Sports Hall, where College students and local school pupils from Pendle and Burnley demonstrated their excellent knowledge in areas including Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Engineering. Work stations included work on obtaining DNA from a crime scene, working out projections using Maths and Physics, exploring the wonders of Chemistry, using natural resources such as wind and water to create power and designing and building a hovercraft.
