A Virtual STEM Careers Event

We are delighted to be taking part in “Big Bang Digital Workshop” a virtual STEM Careers Event this term hosted by Big Bang Education.

Our Science faculty leads the way in promoting STEM careers to all our students but this term our Years 8 scientists were inspired and encourage to set some career related goals.

Students had the opportunity to learn about different career sectors in science, technology, engineering and complete an online virtual workshop.

Spread over the three days they were introduced to:

  • Solving human challenges with STEM
  • Technology changing the world
  • Climate change and the environment
  • Young environmentalists — young people inspiring change
  • Meet the Future You: Women in Engineering Day
  • The science behind the NHS’s 350 careers
  • Ask an expert: Life after Covid-19

The Government is encouraging more young people to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) related subjects because they will give you the skills you will need for a wide range of career choices in the future.  For more information have a look at these useful websites:
