Monthly Highlights -  May 2017
Edition 31

Over 500 students from years 7 - 12 enjoyed a fun, action-packed day of exciting shows and interactive workshops at the Big Bang @ Solent.  
The event took place at Hilton at The Ageas Bowl on 27th April.

A host of our most prestigious local companies took part with the aim, to raise students’ awareness of the huge variety of career opportunities within STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and to bring these subjects to life.

The importance of these subjects in Hampshire cannot be over emphasised. Many businesses say they cannot recruit enough staff locally to fill STEM related posts, and with a large proportion of the workforce over 50, we know this situation will get worse if we don’t encourage more young people to take up STEM subjects.

The Royal Navy

69% of students who visited the Big Bang felt inspired to find out about different careers.
