Engineers of the future flock to St Clement Danes

A day’s events to celebrate “2018: The Year of Engineering” took place at St Clement Danes School on Tuesday 20th March. STEM ambassadors provided activities for children from 6 local primary schools during the afternoon which ranged from a careers carousel to building a bobsleigh out of Knex. In the evening, 30 engineers from 25 companies provided stalls in a huge range of fields, from the armed forces to virtual reality technology. With over 500 visitors, the event proved hugely popular, with students and their parents able to ask questions and take part in hands on activities such as 3D imaging of visitors’ hands. Event organiser Mrs Quinton said “We were delighted with the response to this event and thrilled to see so many students from St Clement Danes and surrounding schools at the evening. All our visitors were able to take advantage of the opportunity to find out more about how they can apply their STEM learning from school to careers they might pursue in later life. The engineers gave their time freely and we are very grateful indeed to them all for taking part in this celebration of Engineering.”
