Team Ineos - STEM activity
/ Categories: General
Year 8 girls were invited to a STEM activity at the headquarters of Team Ineos UK in Portsmouth. The day consisted of several workshops comprising hands-on activities, lectures about growth mindset and the opportunity to build and test their own sail in a wind tunnel.
Every one had a lot of fun and enjoyed interviewing females in the STEM industry who are at the top of their careers. Some of these women worked on satellites, some worked as maintenance engineers and one was completing her PHD in air pollution.
Our girls learned that you don’t have to go to university to enjoy access to these careers as apprenticeships also offer a way into the STEM industries. In their own words, “I thoroughly enjoyed today, it was very immersive and there were many opportunities to engage. I could relate to and understand the material. It was very interesting to learn about the different careers in Maritime and STEM.”
