STEAM Education develops fun, activity-based programmes in science, technology, engineering, arts and maths to complement and enhance the primary school curricula. They match experts from industry and academia with primary school teachers to co-deliver the programmes. Their mission is simple: to inspire the next generation to love STEAM subjects, and to help them develop the skills they will require to build a better future.

Why we backed STEAM Education

STEAM Education is addressing the lack of creative education across these areas in an innovative, strategic, and considered manner. They had proven the interest and enthusiasm for their service from both industry and schools when they came to SEI, and we were compelled to give our support to help them to grow their impact and further refine their scaling plan.

We were attracted by their robust and clever business model, and the knowledge and drive of the team. We could see the large-scale benefit and wisdom of connecting professionals with children, and were drawn to STEAM’s approach which ensured their programmes were fun, engaging, and aligned to curricula.

"We match industry professionals and academic experts with primary school teachers to deliver our programmes TOGETHER.”
