Our growing world is putting pressure on demand for food, water supplies and cleaner energy. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects develop the complex and creative thinking needed to respond to our growing world. The future isn’t yet made, but the STEM way of thinking can bridge the skills gap our future needs, and help us make the future together.

That’s why we developed the NXplorers programme. It creates talent that can look at things differently, see opportunities, and build sustainable solutions to global issues. Importantly, it connects education and application, equipping students with the tools to apply their learnings and make their ideas real. We’re enabling the next generation to reimagine our world, giving them the confidence to make a difference in their local communities, and globally.
