Future Careers Networking Evening
Over 100 local STEM Ambassadors, STEM Teachers, Careers Advisors and FE College professionals met at Winchester Science Centre recently to share ideas about career opportunities for young people and to find out how they could best support each other.
The event began with a delicious cream tea, followed by a mass speed-networking session for teachers and ambassadors. There was then some time for people to finish conversations, visit stands (17 local STEM employers and local FE colleges were represented) before adjourning to the Planetarium to hear the keynote speech. Prof Averil Macdonald spoke about why girls have resisted previous attempts to encourage them to pursue careers in physics and engineering and what can be done to address this.
