STEM PROGRAMME

STEM programmes in the UK are intended for young students from across the world who want to build their career in the field of science, math, technology and engineering. Read more about the importance of STEM here.

As always, LIYSF will aim to cover a broad range of subjects across STEM fields and students will be able to tailor their programme to suit their own STEM interests. Future developments with Artificial Intelligence, Nano-technology, Engineering, Robotics, Biology, Medicine, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Astrophysics will be considered in depth across LIYSF lectures and visits from world leading researchers.

For two weeks at LIYSF, participants live together as an international community to exchange their ideas and experiences of the world. The modern world still presents new challenges and the scientific advancements continue to increase. How science moves forward in the future, with the thinkers of today and the questions to be asked, comes from those students attending LIYSF.

SCIENCE FOR HUMANITY

The LIYSF 2021 STEM programme will have the underlying theme “science for humanity”.

There are many challenges that we are facing today as a society that really only scientists can address. Science activities can make a real change in our world.

The problems we face globally are diverse and challenging in nature, so we need diverse teams to tackle these. At LIYSF 2021 we will consider how all science disciplines should be used together to provide effective solutions for challenges such as, climate change, sustainable energy, viruses, ageing and over-population to data management, cyber-security and the authenticity of information. We will consider how science can be used to mobilise change and address the issues we face.

Never has science been more vital to mankind. Therefore, how science is communicated is even more important today – not just to governments and policy makers, but to everyone. Scientists must be able to articulate their ideas in an effective manner and provide evidence-based facts.

LIYSF 2021 will not only consider what the scientific and technological landscape might look in the future and how this can be influenced, but will also equip students with new knowledge and skills, connections and a broader perspective.
