Network Rail and partners have teamed up to put on a day of free science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) activities for children aged between 4 – 16.
This is a one off event which will see Network Rail and partners work together to put on educational and fun-filled activities which children can get involved in, helping to encourage participation in STEM subjects. More information on the activities available is below.
Representatives from industry who volunteer as STEM ambassadors will be on hand to talk about their careers and routes into STEM. They will host 6m wide, 1.5m tall engineering colouring wall for visitors to colour in.
Primary Engineer will display inspirational entries from their ‘if you were an engineer, what would you do?’ competition which everyone from 3 – 19 can take part in. Each year, young people around UK identify a problem in the world and design a solution to it.
