Festival of Science & Engineering
CBSbutler join forces with local charity Surrey SATRO for the annual Festival of Science and Engineering... David Leyshon, Managing Director of CBSbutler comments:
The Festival provides an extremely important platform for promoting STEM subjects and showing just what our scientists and engineers of tomorrow can do”. He continues: “In a recent article it stated that almost 30,000 highly skilled scientists and engineers are needed every year from now until 2015 to ease shortages and replace the ageing work force. It is therefore vital that we encourage students to study these subjects at school, college and university before moving into a career in the STEM field - the Festival is an excellent way of doing this.”
What is the Festival of Science & Engineering?
Now in its 14th year, the Festival continues to promote science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) as a career; and aims to offer teams from local schools and after school clubs the best possible opportunity to showcase their talents and high quality science and engineering projects devised and built during the current school year. This can range from Year 9 science clubs, GCSE, GNVQ, Diploma, AS, A2, after school clubs/schemes or other areas of work that is innovative and outstanding.
