Get Up To Speed - STEM Virtual Experience

 

As part of World of Work Week, our Science department has signed up for the Get Up To Speed with STEM Virtual Experience. It starts at 08:00 on Monday 22nd March and ends at 17:00 on Friday 26th March 2021. It’s a chance to see and hear from some of the UK’s most exciting Science, Technology,  Engineering and Manufacturing (STEM)  businesses, inventors, apprentices, graduates  and education providers in an event like no other.

Get inspired with some great careers  ideas and advice from those who really  know! There are a wide variety of  topics, including company  tours, real-life career stories, meet the expert  sessions, company information, challenges and  much more. There is a di­fferent spotlight on great areas of industry each day to give some  fantastic insights and advice.  

The site has been adapted so that all attendees from our school community (teachers, staff, students, and families) can access via this same unique login. Multiple users can login and use the same details at the same time and return on more than one occasion.

Watch this video for a short explanation on how to login and navigate the online platform:
