STEM in the Pipeline 2017



An insight for older pupils into how STEM applies to real-life situations within the Oil and Gas sector. 


Thanks to supporters and sponsors joining us to celebrate 11 years of the project, we are delighted to invite all secondary schools from Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire to STEM in the Pipeline 2017.


The relevant dates for this year's project are:
Friday 23rd June: School Application Deadline
Thursday 24th August: Introduction Day at the University of Aberdeen
Friday 24th November: Deadline for submission of projects to TechFestTuesday
5th December: Presentation Day at BP North Sea Headquarters, Dyce 


The project is designed to allow teams of pupils to apply their knowledge of school subjects to a realistic industry project and gives an overview of the variety of job roles available in the Oil and Gas industry.The event runs from August to December and invites teams of 6 students to participate. The project set is a challenging one - to produce a Field Development Plan.  

STEM in the Pipeline compromises of three parts: an interactive Introduction Day, a 16 week period of independent project work at school and a final presentation day. Each part of the project allows the students to advance their knowledge of STEM subjects but also encourages them to develop both their personal and team-work skills. The final stage of the event is a presentation day, where the teams involved present their completed project to a selection of industry professionals.
