This year we are mentor for the STEM Challenge 2019 (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths). The competition, to design and manufacture a product, is forging valuable links between local business and schools. In doing so it is promoting engineering to the next generation.
The projects aim is to boost student engagement with these key topics and aims to give them an understanding of how, what they learn in the classroom, will play a vital role in future careers.
In the Midlands section of the challenge contains 21 schools, with each one partnered with a different business in the industry. We have teamed up to mentor local school Windsor High School, with Somers mentors being Victoria Allen and Mike Addison. We hope to win with a green solution which we will help to design and manufacture using elements of STEM.
