Here are some examples of events hosted by Q-Step Sheffield.
In 2021 we launched our first essay competition for GCSE students, exploring the question “How do statistics affect our everyday lives?”.
Nuffield Research Placements
Every summer Q-Step Sheffield host local students as part of the nationwide scheme “Nuffield Research Placements” that offers A-Level students the opportunity to attend universities and participate in engaging, hands-on STEM research projects.

DataFest Summer School
In recent years Q-Step Sheffield has hosted DataFest, a 4-day summer school devoted to applied data analysis and employability skills.
Making Sense of Data in the Media
Q-Step Sheffield has created a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Making Sense of Data in the Media” that runs 3 times per year with interactive support from the Q-Step Research Associates. The MOOC has reached thousands of online learners exposing abuses and misuses of statistics in the mainstream news.
The student placements at the SMI are funded by the Sheffield Q-Step Centre. This placement scheme gives undergraduate students the opportunity to undertake high-quality paid work experience on a number of exciting projects with respectable organisations.
