Big Bang Careers Day
4th July 2017
Leighton Park School
During the year Bion and others have worked in collaboration with Leighton Park School to assist them in achieving their STEM goals. Earlier in the year we took part in a STEM day aimed at Primary schools within the surrounding areas.
The event on the 4th July was aimed at Year 10 and upwards to demonstrate the range of careers that can be had in STEM.
Bion went with 3 employee, myself as STEM champion, Dee our Year in Industry student via EDT and Darryl who is our apprentice currently at BCOT. Through our network we involved BCOT, EDT and Tomorrows Engineers. It was good to see other manufacturers present such as JLR and engineering and the diverse range of engineering opportunities via AMEC Foster Wheeler.
Hopefully we can start to make inroads into the lack of people taking up STEM careers and I know that next year we will be hoping to do bigger and better events and open this up to more students and companies.
It is clear from this that if we work together then united on the STEM front we can certainly start to make a difference.
