Ogi has launched a new STEM programme for schools in south Wales in collaboration with Science Made Simple.

Pupils in the Vale of Glamorgan become the first in Wales to benefit from this new science education workshop which aims to help schools to embed ultrafast connectivity and showcase the real-life application of STEM subjects.

The sessions introduce students to the science behind fibre and sees them build and solder their own slice of a network.

Sarah Vining, Head of Brand and Engagement at Ogi, said: “This initiative gives pupils the opportunity to build their own piece of the puzzle; learning more about the technology they use each and every day.”

“It is essential we continue to help schools access opportunities like this, which demonstrate the real-life application of these vitally important STEM subjects.”

The initial pilot programme launched during the autumn term with three schools in Llantwit Major, coinciding with the completion of Ogi’s initial broadband works programme in the Vale of Glamorgan town.

The internet company is now using feedback from the initial pilot to help design the next phase of the programme rollout in 2023.
