Along with schools, universities are our key partners in the work we do at Generating Genius. THey can offer strong academic support to show students the importance and value of STEM knowledge and skills, as well as provide students with an insight into life in higher education.
Importantly as well as working with specific departments and the widening participation teams at universities we also work with a number of volunteering centres, such as that at UCL and Queen Mary, who provide the academic tutors for our students.
Generating Genius and the University of Exeter work in collaboration to provide a cohesive programme of activities for a cohort of students who are currently part of Junior Genius. This includes a fantastic residential, giving participants an insight into university life and an understanding of what a university like Exeter has to offer. The week is very academically challenging and designed with input from various departments such as environmental sciences, biology and computing. Students are given the opportunity to conduct experiments, visit research centres and use up to date technology to study real world issues that the scientist and engineers of the future will need to solve; for example climate change and water access.
This residential is just the start of a relationship between these Junior Geniuses and the university; Generating Genius and the Exeter team are working closely to develop plans for a long term programme that will give students the opportunity to revisit Exeter, get further academic and peer support to help them reach their potential.
