STEM subjects promoted in Harrow
Mon 1 April 2019, 2:25 pm
Students from across the UK learned about the importance of STEM subjects and careers at a special event at Harrow College last month.
The education venue provided taster workshops about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects at an event led by not-for-profit organisation Engineering Development Trust (EDT).
Pupils took part in a range of activities including computer programming, photo and video editing, making an electronic circuit and considered STEM subject options for further education.
The students also learned about opportunities with Industrial Cadets, which offers young people the chance to work with employers for accredited experiences to gain insight and skills in a particular industry, helping to create a talented workforce for the future.
This event was part of EDT’s programme for students in the UK to spend three days at a college, university and an employer, with the aim to enhance technical, personal and employability skills.
Michael Worgs, head of school for science, IT and media, said: “This was a fantastic way for young people from all over the area and beyond to see how many opportunities there are on offer in the fields of science, technology, maths and engineering.
“It was a really valuable chance for school students to see Harrow College from the inside, use our great facilities, and find out more about the many routes from college into both university and really rewarding and worthwhile careers.”
