The BAE Systems Roadshow has returned to St Benedict’s with our Year 7 students enjoying the lecture, which incorporated engineering, maths, coding and all things STEM related.
The BAE Systems Education Programme Roadshow, delivered in partnership with the RAF and the Royal Navy, is in its thirteenth year of touring across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. This year alone they will visit more than 420 schools, and reach out to more 100,000 young people.
The Roadshow was devised in response to the Government’s acknowledgement that there is already a shortfall of ‘home grown’ scientists and engineers to meet the needs of the country and by capturing the interest of young people aged 10 – 13, they can hopefully increase the numbers that take STEM subjects and ultimately increase the pool of talent in years to come.
This is the first of many career related events that the Year 7 students will be taking part in this academic year.
