Overview

This course is for 13-15 year olds who are interested and academically bright and show a real passion for science. Students should be studying GSCE / A Level or equivalent science subjects at school and should be thinking of pursuing this at a “top” University. Through tried and tested lessons students are taught the theoretical knowledge needed and then in workshops they learn to create, make and innovate exciting lab experiments. This course pushes the academic knowledge of students in Mathematics and Science and they experience what it is really like to study Science and Engineering as an undergraduate at University.

Academic content

The below are core details that will be covered in STEM workshops.

These workshops are created and tested by LITE Regal STEM and Engineering teachers whom are Oxbridge or London University Graduates or Postgraduates. Students are placed into groups to encourage team building and are set “design” and “make” projects. These projects improve creative thinking, problem solving and team work. We will make no “bones” about it – students will be academically challenged in their Maths and Science abilities.

Bridge Building

In groups students will work as Engineers to design and build their own bridge. Students must consider how high the bridge is to be used, how long and wide it should be and how much weight it must hold. Using geometry, maths and measurements each bridge must be able to carry the weight of a model car. Prizes will be given for the bridge which carries the most weight as well as having the most “pleasing” design.

Build a water pump

Students will learn about Archimedes of Syracus 3rd Century BC who invented a pump still in use today. They will be required to design and build a simple pump to supply rural village in Africa with drinking water. Students will use different materials provided as well as learning about the different types of pumps. Pumps will be judged according to design, creativity, material costs and power usage.

Blast Off! Construction of a rocket!

Students will construct a rocket using materials and powered by air and a launch apparatus students try to launch the rocket as high as possible. The rockets should easily achieve 200 ft. in the air. Students in groups will learn the design and aerodynamics and be set a challenge to fly the rocket as high as possible. Students will learn about aerospace engineering and learn about Newton’s 3rd Law of motion. 

Tallest Building and Tall Tower Challenge

Using a variety of materials students are placed in groups and explore the design process of tall structures and telecommunication towers. Students using STEM and technical knowledge must build the tallest tower they can. The tower must be strong enough to support the weight of a golf ball for 2 minutes. The tallest and most “beautiful” building wins.

Students will learn about structural Engineering and the maths behind shapes that govern tall buildings.

STEM Field Visit

Lite Regal is unique from many other summer schools in that it offers unique field visits to innovative companies that would benefit and inspire students.

For 2016 year STEM students will visit Hyder Consulting, responsible for the new London Bridge station and many other projects as well as field visits to the Science Museum (London). Also for this year due to popular request students will have the option of visiting Google Campus in London should they wish with the Business Enterprise and Leadership course students. 

All STEM students will also be given membership of the young Engineers to become ambassadors for STEM and also to be part of a global UK network promoting STEM with many benefits.

My son was here last summer. He enjoyed the Business Enterprise course and loved the different activities after class. Great welfare too. Accommodation was suitable, and food was OK. Overall, a good experience that helped him get through the first semester of college.

My daughter is very satisfied with this institute. She took the Sumer Intensive English Course. We are immigrants from India and I want her to be able to speak the language with confident. She loved the program and the tutors, I can tell now that she feels more secure when talking to others and her writting skills have improved as well.

The experience of a lifetime. I took the LAW SCHOOL PREPARATION SUMMER COURSE here in Lite Regal, mainly because I needed some help with my stage fright. It gives me a lot of anxiety just by talking in public, and as a future lawyer I need to overcome that; the tutors here in this institute gave me the real tools and made me feel more secure about myself, so I won't have any problems when I begin my career. From the students to the tutors, they all helped me a lot and I am grateful to them.

I was home sick at first, but after a few days I made many friends - up to this day we still talk to each other... The staff were friendly, especially the activities leaders. Activities coordinators were the best, we had such a wonderful time learning and having fun on outdoors activities. I will never forget this experience at Lite Regal, best summer course ever.

I did the Film Academy Summer Course, and I absolutely LOVED it. I got my hands on practical training in all aspects of film production, including camera work, lighting, script writing, editing. The tutors and lecturers are professionals in the Film Industry and they taught me a lot of things. I did the course in London and I got the chance to do a field excursion to the Warner Bros Studio Tour; experience was ace... Campus was great and I did a lot of friends. I would take the course again if I've got the chance.

Couldn't ask for more. My son was impressed with this course, not only it was educational but also very cultural. He took the Global Leadership course, I guess he wants to be an entrepreneur just like his father. He learned so much, I know now he is ready for College. Thank you Lite Regal.

Nice institute. I attended the Creative Writing course last summer, 2 weeks in London. Good instructors, the people were nice and you learn a lot. I give it 4 star because the food was OK and the wifi sometimes was a little slow, but other than that I was a great experience.

My daughter took the 4 week Medicine course in London. Her dream has always been being a world famous M.D., but before she started applying for the long career, I wanted her to be inspired and to see if that was her truly vocation... She LOVED the course here at Lite Regal Education, she always tell me that thanks to this institute she rested assured that she was following the right track. I am greatly grateful with this institute, they did their best in providing my daughter with the tools so she could finally make up her mind.

The school is friendly and there are lots of activitys'. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn but also enjoy learning. I applied for 6 summer schools, but out of every single one this was my first choose for so many reasons. The wifi was dropping in the evening on few occasions. When I complained about the wifi they told me that the router was far away from the room. But luckily they gave my me a better room.

I remember having a great time last summer attending the 4 weeks course in Cambridge. It was a marvelous experience. I attended the course for Engineering Preparation, very complete and inspirational. The staff are talented people and the students I met there were amazing, it was educational but fun at the same time. I certainly hope this course will help me with my application to the University of Cambridge.
