DVLA STEM Programme

The DVLA STEM Programme is a volunteer-led initiative, supported by DVLA. The programme was founded in 2014 to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and grass roots learning, from primary schools through to sixth form and college students, throughout Wales. Since then, the programme has grown considerably. We run competitions and events for all primary and secondary schools in Wales, donating hundreds of thousands of pounds to schools across the country. We achieve this with the support of DVLA and our generous sponsors. The STEM programme helps children learn the fundamentals of STEM subjects and shows the opportunities they have for the future.

These are just some of the Projects DVLA is working on this year. Check out our What’s On Page for the full list.
