How the day works?

The event will run with areas which provide an opportunity to talk to employees in industry and learn more about the applications of STEM and the careers on offer:

  • Exhibits from industry, public bodies and research organisations,
  • Workshop or industry challenge,
  • Careers networking.
Run by a SATRO STEM Tutor the event can respond to different focus areas eg. engineering or technology and can be linked to local industries to bring real-world career path information.  This can be scaled to be delivered to smaller groups of girls around a workshop in one school or in a larger event bringing small groups from different schools together. 

In 2022 an event run with Fluor Engineering saw:
  • 73.6% of girls attending say that they would actively consider a career in STEM,
  • 88% felt that talking to employees in STEM jobs helped them think about their futures.
