Girls in Engineering Club
Ran in partnership with Coleg Cambria, this project aims to increase the number of year 8 and 9 girls from Communities First areas to consider Engineering as a possible career. 23 girls from years 8-9 participated in the first level engineering course. The majority of girls want to follow a career in engineering, those who did not want to follow a career in it still found it enjoyable and informative.
STEM Family Challenge events
In partnership with Engineering Development Trust, these events aim to engage and inspire students together with their families into STEM showing them the different routes and courses available and raising awareness that positively alters the image of STEM careers. The STEM Family Challenge has been designed to engage, inform and highlight to families the benefits of courses and careers available in STEM as well as give them the opportunity to work in teams on a fun family ‘hands on’ STEM activity through an evening event. The event focuses on STEM career guidance by giving students a taster of STEM in its broadest context, demonstrating how this fits into the ‘real’ world of work and the pathways available to them.
