thanks for that.
Would anyone from the Outreach time like to come down to Dumfries on 26/11/14? We are holding a STEM day, particularly to try and encourage girls to take up a career in technology. Please see details below.
St Joseph’s is running a stem day on 26th November this year including a “speed-dating” careers event. This will involve S4 pupils circulating in groups round a variety of stem ambassadors (professionals from a range of organisations), asking them questions about their jobs. The aim of the event is to of course enthuse our pupils about science, technology, engineering and maths related careers, but also to ensure they make informed option choices at the end of S4. We are particularly keen to promote stem opportunities among girls, who are under-represented in these types of careers.
Ambassadors don’t need to be graduates, but any professionals who work in Scotland would begood. We need 25 ambassadors for the day if possible!
