Science and Engineering Career Days
What are science and engineering career days?
Science and Engineering Career Days are either half or full day events which bring together representatives from a range of different science and engineering sectors with students from schools across Tyne and Wear.
Who are career days for?
All students in schools and colleges across Tyne and Wear can benefit from the inspiration and encouragement of Science and Engineering Career Days. Teachers also find new ideas and energy.
What are the benefits?
Students primarily benefit from exposure to the vast range of career options available through further study in areas of science, engineering, technology and maths (STEM). Through participation in workshops, demonstrations and activities with industry professionals students gain insight into the various job roles open to them and get excited about the new directions their studies could take them in.
What happens on a typical career day?
We have found a carrousel like layout to events works well and allows the students and industry representatives the most valuable experience. Small groups of students are led through a workshop or demonstration by representatives from one area of the science and engineering. The students see some interesting aspects of the representatives careers and are encouraged to ask lots of questions to get a real feel for the subject. Students then move onto the next workshop and so on.
How are STEM Ambassadors ambassadors involved?
Newcastle College STEM Outreach STEM Ambassadors play a key role in delivering workshops and demonstrations at these events. As representatives from a vast array of industry specialisms STEM Ambassadors are great at enthusing students about the possibilities open to them through STEM study and following STEM related career paths.
