Students explore STEM opportunities at RMAS STEM 2019
We were pleased to take a group of students from Glenthorne High School to attend an exciting careers fair, as part of our London Enterprise Adviser Network service. The event was delivered by the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and was intended to help young people discover what career opportunities there are available for them in STEM subjects.
The school participated in a 45 minute workshop from a mixture of STEM activities. They also explored what STEM opportunities on offer at the various stands, exhibitions, demonstrations as well as spending time with role models.
Not only did the students get to meet our chairman James Reed, they also met The Princess Royal HRH Princess Anne. We asked Glenthorne’s Career Leader about her experience of LEAN and the event:
“For our students it has really opened their eyes to the fact there are a lot of STEM choices available to them. There was a wide range of activities in a superb setting so a truly beneficial event for both students and school.”
We also asked Edina, the school’s STEM co-ordinator what her thoughts on the impact of the event for the students:
“The event has allowed the students to see that there are so many opportunities in STEM. The hands on activities for students have been fantastic.”
The students who attended also enjoyed the experience and commented on the impact of the event on them and their future career:
“I found the event really useful as I didn’t know actual companies that were involved in STEM - I got lots of information, especially around work experience.”
