STEMworks support global, national and local companies with their educational outreach programmes in schools, colleges and communities.
In Somerset, we have continued to work with EDF by delivering practical activities to secondary school students. Our workshops promote career opportunities available at Hinkley Point C and raise awareness about carbon neutral energy. Schools benefit from these sessions as they help meet Gatsby Benchmarks.
We are also raising the profile of the ‘Hinkley Point Connection’ project for National Grid. During the past two years we have presented energy and electricity workshops to KS1 and KS2 classes, and highlight the new ‘T-pylons’ that National Grid are erecting in Somerset and Bristol to transport the electricity generated at HPC.
Please contact us if your school is interested in linking with a local company, or you are business who would like ideas on how to engage with your community.
