Sam Lawrence, Teacher of Design Technology and Engineering, Cotham School

As an experienced classroom teacher and middle leader, I have spent the past decade working with students, colleagues in schools across Bristol and the South West in Design & Technology and Computer Science. A lifelong curiosity for how things work and how to improve them has fuelled my passion for STEM subjects. I have worked with schools across the region to design curricula that places engineering at the centre and promotes valuable skills, careers and role models that young people can aspire to follow in the footsteps of.

Collaborating with higher education and businesses in aviation, metrology and healthcare I have enabled student experiences of industry practices in the classroom through a wide variety of curriculum projects, events and competitions. Alongside my teaching and leadership roles I have spent the past several years developing and delivering engaging hands-on STEM workshops on behalf of the Royal Academy of Engineering to students across Bristol to inspire our next generation of designers and engineers.
