They tell us:
Back by popular demand, the British Motor Museum is proud to host two special STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Careers days on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 June featuring a host of interactive STEM-based activities for secondary school pupils in years 7 to 10.
27 June is Girls in STEM Day, providing a safe space for girls to meet with industry professionals and inspirational women from the STEM workforce. The day will begin with an exclusive keynote presentation and Q&A with Jenny Eyes, Digital Product Chief at Jaguar Land Rover. Jenny will share her story as a woman in STEM and her route into her senior role at one the UK’s biggest producers of luxury and sport utility vehicles.
After a day of exciting STEM activities, students will have the chance to meet Eliza Seville, Formula Woman 2022 winner and mechanic and test pilot at Roborace, and Chloe Grant from Laser Tools GB4 Racing Team, to discover what it takes to be a successful woman in motorsport.
On 28 June, the Museum will host a STEM Careers Day open to all students. After an exclusive keynote presentation from industry partners, students will take an interactive tour of the collection, race remote-controlled Jaguar D-types around a special track, try out some hands-on science activities with the STEM Ambassadors from MoD Kineton and much more. Their day will culminate with a special presentation from Eliza Seville, Formula Woman 2022 winner.
To continue their learning back at home or school, students will also receive a goody bag containing two STEM activities, including a salt-powered car kit to take away.
Claire Broader from the Museum’s Learning and Engagement Team said: “We’re delighted to be once again hosting our STEM Careers Days, which we hope will inspire and empower the engineers and scientists of the future! It will be an exciting day of immersive and interactive learning in a unique setting, surrounded by our amazing collection of historic British cars.”
The cost is just £12.50 per pupil for a full day at the Museum, running from 10am – 2pm. The Museum’s Travel Support Scheme, with the support of Arts Council England, is also available to help cover schools’ transport costs.
