Aston Manor Academy B6 4PZ
Yr 9 & 10 and their families

The event is hosted by the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) and has been designed to show families some of the courses and careers available in Science, Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) as well as give them the opportunity to work in teams on a fun family 'hands on' STEM activity. Through this event they are trying to engage parents/guardians into STEM as well as their children.

Over the two hours, EDT will be running a STEM hands on activity which the families will enter in teams. They are looking for STEM Ambassadors who are students or recent graduates to speak to the families for about 10 minutes on e.g. the course they have been studying, what it is like being at university or on an apprenticeship programme, the benefits and what type of industry/ company they would like to work for etc.
