Last week all S1 pupils took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) event where they had the opportunity to learn about STEM careers and what these jobs entail through interacting with visiting STEM ambassadors.
We were very fortunate to have eleven STEM ambassadors, offering their expert advice, from a wide range of professions such as
- mechanical, civil and structural engineering,
- neuroscience research,
- pharmaceutical research,
- food technology and
In addition to this, pupils completed a ‘skills’ workshop where they used their strengths and skills to identify and find out more about jobs they may be interested pursuing in the future. Pupils asked excellent questions and fully embraced the opportunity to find out more about STEM careers.
