STEM SMART is the University's flagship widening participation initiative for sixth-form students interested in studying Engineering, Computer Science, Physical Sciences (eg physics, chemistry, earth sciences, materials science) or Biological Sciences (eg plant sciences, pharmacology, physiology, evolution and behaviour, biochemistry) at university.

Clare is proud to be one of the colleges that has been involved with the programme since it launched in 2021. For the 2024-25 cohort, Clare will continue to provide undergraduate mentoring, postgraduate supervision, and a summer residential for the most actively engaged students.
