I can safely say that James from the Mathematics into Schools Module has been the best placement yet and hope he achieves the maximum mark possible for this part in the course. He really has deserved it.

Schools Liaison Officer Louise Crabtree

Louise Crabtree
Education outreach Officer (STEM)

The main aim of my role is to encourage young people to continue their study of STEM subjects through school or college and into Higher Education. Having previously worked in the Chemical industry for nearly 10 years, I am keen for young people to understand the importance of science and maths in our lives and its everyday uses. 

I coordinate much of the outreach programme for schools offered by the Faculty of Maths and Physical Sciences, i.e. Chemistry, Physics, Food Science and Maths. However, I am also part of the wider STEM outreach team here at the University, which includes Engineering, Biosciences and Environment. As a group we utilise the talents of our post graduate students to help deliver many of our activities, some of which are offered during the Leeds Festival of Science.

If you would like to find out more about what we have to offer, please contact me:
