Virtual encounters with STEM professionals

Remember how abstract the world of work seemed when you were still in school? Help your students get a glimpse into their future with these virtual encounters.

Virtual encounters with STEM professionals

 

Every student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace.

The current climate makes it tricky to maintain good careers practice at school, so we’ve put together this collection of virtual encounters with engineers and other STEM professionals.

Get your students engaged – be it by getting them to design their own 3D printed fridge magnet, by working with astronomers to identify potential targets for the James Webb Space Telescope, or by scoring a 1-2-1 careers chat with a big firm employee.
