Trinity Engage: Give Knowledge with STIMULUS
STIMULUS is a community service programme which gives Cambridge University students the opportunity to work with pupils in local primary and secondary schools, helping with Maths, Science, ICT or Technology lessons. STIMULUS students work as volunteer Teaching Assistants in the classroom, alongside the class teacher. Volunteers come from all disciplines but mainly mathematics, technology and science-related subjects. The school placement will be for a couple of hours each week during term, at a time to fit around University lectures and other commitments. The commitment is for one term (about six visits) although many volunteers return for more.
There is an orientation meeting at the start of term, and a training session during the school half-term. Volunteers come from all disciplines but mainly mathematics, technology and science-related subjects, with several each year studying medicine. STIMULUS gives University students opportunities to develop their communication and interpersonal skills, as well as experience in the classroom and a better understanding of education. Most crucially, STIMULUS establishes a strong and positive link between the University and the local community.
