E3R proud to be part of Get up to Speed with STEM’s tenth anniversary
E3R is delighted to be involved with Get up to Speed with STEM, Yorkshire’s largest annual employer-inspired science, technology, engineering, manufacturing (STEM) and construction careers event, as it celebrates its ten-year anniversary.
The event will take place at Magna Science Centre, Rotherham, on Wednesday 25th March 2020 and is sponsored by Sheffield’s Liberty Speciality Steels, Chesterfield’s CBE+ and Rotherham’s AESSEAL plc.
It is the third year E3R has supported the event which last year attracted 3,000 visitors from 69 schools with over 90 businesses all coming together to promote STEM to young people.
Over the past 10 years, Get up to Speed has showcased engineering career opportunities to over 19,000 young people and their teachers and families from across the South Yorkshire region and beyond.
Get up to Speed with STEM is an annual event, which is designed for young people to see some of the UK’s best innovations first hand, hear from and talk to those involved in their success and learn about the future of the sector and its evolution through technology.
This year’s Get up to Speed with STEM will include a particular focus on robotics and renewables, feature ten zones to mark ten years and include presentations from previous visitors that have gone on to secure a career in STEM-related industries as a result of past events.
Get up to Speed with STEM also gives companies the opportunity to showcase their business whilst helping to address the skills gap in STEM-related industries.
E3R Director Andrew Joseph commented: “Get up to Speed with STEM event promotes STEM to young people giving them a platform to speak to businesses, inventors, apprentices and education providers.
“The level of engagement with the UK’s most exciting science, technology and engineering inventions, allows businesses and students to come together and demonstrate what an exciting career the manufacturing industry can offer both boys and girls within engineering.”
The free event is open to young people, families, individuals, schools and employers to visit. For more information please visit: https://www.getuptospeed.org.uk/home
