Big Bang @ Solent - STEM careers fair, 26th April 2018
On Thursday 26th April a group of our Year 8 students went to the Big Bang @ Solent, one of the biggest STEM career fairs on the South Coast, where they had a great time learning about a variety of potential career paths.
Over 700 young people from across the South were invited to the event, where they were inspired by a host of interactive activities to consider a career in STEM industries. Some of the activities provided by the companies included; students using a T Hotbox to remove dents from a car panel with Apollo; taking selfies with thermal imaging cameras with Leonardo and extracting DNA from fruit with University of Portsmouth Faculty of Science.
It is felt that by allowing young people to try the activities it gives them an understanding of the different job roles available in STEM industries.
Thanks again to EBP South for organising such a fantastic event!
