Grange Technology College STEM success


Year 8 students at Grange Technology College in Bradford took part in an interactive STEM Day last week, with 300 young people getting a better insight into the job roles and opportunities available in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Business volunteers from Yorkshire Building Society, Yeme Architects, Turner & Townsend, Dutton Construction, Leeds Museums & Galleries, Lets Get Computing, NYBEP, the Army and Northern Powergrid devised and delivered ten workshops with students taking part in a selection of each. Themes included engineering, architecture, town planning, digital and finance.

Pete King, Project Coordinator in the region, said: "The day provided students an excellent opportunity to explore how STEM subjects can lead to careers before they decide which subjects they want to take for their GCSEs. The volunteers certainly brought their imagination while supported by Ahead Partnership to create their workshops and today has provided plenty of inspiration at Grange Technology College."
