STEM Careers Roadshow

Year 7 and Year 9 were treated to the STEM roadshow this week, delivered by BAE in partnership with the RAF and Royal Navy.  The show educated them on the themes of communication technology, programming and online security.

The interactive show encouraged our pupils to be responsible and confident users of technology. They were introduced to the science behind mobile phones, Bluetooth, radar and infra-red sensing and were given an insight into how some of these technologies are applied at home and in the workplace.

Each show was intertwined with lots of information about related engineering careers and the pathways required to access them.

Pupil Feedback:

 

“It was so fun.  Engineering is really cool.”

“The careers guidance was really helpful.  I know what websites to look at now.”

“This has improved my self confidence.”
