STEM or STEAM? – Who cares? The butterfly effect of ICT in schools and colleges



The structure of how ICT is invested in the UK education system needs to be addressed. In 15 years the world will have radically changed again – mobile phones will be 1 billion times more powerful than today, Wi-Fi a thing of the past, and we will be printing all manner of physical things from the comfort of our own homes.

Britain must ensure that our children are able to develop the skills that will make a difference to both their career prospects and our economy itself.

How do we prepare for this change, and appreciate that schools and colleges need support to teach children new skills to ready them for their future careers?

HP will explain our view and we can support your in achieving this.
