Further STEMhub success as education and industry collaborate
On Thursday 23 June, we held our second STEMhub meeting in the new format following the success of our last meeting in March.
A total of 20 representatives attended from local schools and companies, all with the aim of collaborating to enrich the quality of STEM education for children.
School representatives were divided into four groups and rotated around sessions hosted by industry partners; Beverley Graves (Central Berkshire Education Business Partnership), Liz Banks (Thames Water), Allison Giles (Thames Valley Berkshire LEP) and Debbie Clifford (University of Reading). After this, attendees were able to preview the STEMhub website which is currently being developed.
The meeting also provided a good opportunity to recognise National Women in Engineering Day, which some of our attendees had already been supporting throughout the day.
Thank you very much to all who attended and took part - we are looking forward to our continued work together throughout the next academic year.
