Satro Event 2



   

Thursday 19th June 2014 saw the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford awash with nearly 800 students, from secondary schools and colleges across Surrey and the South East, as they took part in the 17th annual SATRO Summer Science Festival.

The SATRO Summer Science Festival is the region’s premier event aimed at inspiring young people into STEM based study.

The Festival has now established itself as a highly anticipated event for students in the region, many of whom get the opportunity to exhibit their own science and technology led projects at the event.

It also provides local students with the opportunity to explore the “real-world” technical, scientific and engineering skills sets employers will require in the future.

SATRO Chief Executive Dr Rebecca Bowden said: “It is so encouraging to see so many young people getting excited about the technology of the future – I hope we’ve done our bit to inspire the next generation of scientists so that we can continue to grow our wonderful technology industry here in Surrey”.

SATRO’s patron, Jon Tickle (previously of Sky TVs ‘Braniac’) was Head Judge at the Festival, working alongside CBSbutler MD David Leyshon other notable guests including Dame Sarah Goad DCVO JP, Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, the High Sheriff of Surrey, Mr Peter Lee and the Chairman of Surrey County Council, David Munro.


Educating the next generation of scientists, techies and engineers


CBSbutler is both passionate and proud to be having been head sponsor at SATRO’s Summer Festival of Science for 4 consecutive years.

We hold the wholehearted belief that the event provides a unique opportunity for STEM based businesses to showcase and engage local students in science, technology and engineering based projects.
 

CBSbutler sponsors the Future Working World Area


All students in attendance had an opportunity to get their hands on some exciting science and technology in the CBSbutler Future Working World Area. Over 30 companies and universities demonstrated a range of STEM based activities, competitions and “real world” engineering applications ranging from working with liquid nitrogen, learning about satellite ICT systems and entering a huge blow-up planetarium to name but a few!

Get expert advice of career choices

  Students also had plenty of chance to talk to both scientists and engineering professionals, enabling them to get first hand knowledge of the types of technical careers opportunities open to them after leaving school.

Free information was made available on potential career options, apprenticeship programmes, bursary schemes, graduate recruitment schemes and internships.
