Cambridge LaunchPad

Starting in 2018, The Kavli (alongside the Institute of Astronomy) has become a partner institution with Cambridge LaunchPad (https://cambridge-launchpad.com/).
Cambridge LaunchPad is a movement led by Cambridge science, technology and engineering companies, investing their talent and resources to inspire young people into STEM careers. It is aimed at providing support, experiences and opportunities in STEM to students in Cambridgeshire schools, aged 8 to 18. The programme was developed to inspire a love and fascination of engineering, science and technology in young people and help to educate them about the exciting opportunities that exist in STEM. Specifically, it was designed to address the significant gender gap which exist in STEM employment. The scheme supports and contributes to the growing demand for engineering, science and technology skills in the Cambridge area.
As a Cambridge LaunchPad partner, we will host groups of students aged for single-day workshops. As these workshops will be more extended than our normal school visits, we have worked with Cambridge LaunchPad to design a suitable curriculum, consisting of taught material and hands-on activities, designed to promote Kavli research themes.
