Inspiring STEM 2024 - Exhibit

Inspiring STEM Logo 2

Inspiring STEM event is an interactive, timetabled one day event. This event provides businesses with an opportunity to inspire secondary school students about careers in STEM. Taking place at the National Oceanography Centre, this event combines activities provided by businesses with lab activities and a NOC activity. Businesses are required to create a short 25-minute STEM activity that young people in groups can take part in. Businesses will need to supply the equipment and resources. The activity should be fun and you could have prizes for the group with the quickest time if they are making a car or furthest plane etc.

The benefits of attending are:

  • It is an exciting, fun, interactive event that showcases the career opportunities in STEM industries.
  • Helping the break down stereotypes about STEM careers.
  • It inspires young people to aspire to job roles in your industry – often young people don’t aspire to job roles because they don’t know they exist or what they involve.
  • By attending this event, businesses can help to reduce future skills gaps – research has shown it is important that young people are inspired by businesses from a young age.
  • This event is a proactive way for businesses to give back to your community.
