VHE Geo-Environmental Engineers become STEM Ambassadors
15 May 2019
Senior Geo-Environmental Engineer, Gemma Hickingbotham, and Geo-Environmental Engineer, Steven Ashton, have committed to offering their time, knowledge and enthusiasm to help bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects to life for young people and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers by becoming STEM Ambassadors.
Next month Steven will be getting involved in the Big Bang Fair at Doncaster Racecourse. The fair, which is the largest one-day STEM event in the Yorkshire and Humber region, is free to attend and will include exciting interactive activities to inspire students to take up STEM careers. The fair will also raise the profile of young people’s achievements in STEM through the Big Bang Competition.
In July both Gemma and Steven will be involved in the Bradford Science Festival at The Science and Media Museum. In celebration of 2019 marking 50 years since the first humans landed on the moon the free to attend events over the weekend will feature a look at space travel among many other attractions.
