Careers Showcase - 25th September 2017 10am - 3pm
Dynamic Earth are pleased to present the Inspiring Young Scientists Careers Showcase, celebrating STEM and Geography careers.
Thanks to special funding from the UK Association of Science and Discovery Centres and the Science and Technology Facilities Council, this event is free of charge. This event is aimed at secondary school pupils.
On Monday 25th September 2017 we will be hosting a free careers showcase aimed at secondary school pupils. Our aim is to give pupils an insight into some of the amazing and potentially surprising careers accessible to those who opt for science and geography at school. There will be a strong cohort of role models on hand to share their journeys into science for young people to chat with, question and be inspired by.
The showcase is supported by a wide mix of organisations from industry, academia and public service, all offering up their expertise to engage and inspire the next generation.
The event is open to all schools and community groups working with young people of secondary school age but P6/P7 groups are also welcome. We recommend you allow an hour for the showcase and book it as a free addition to a Dynamic Earth visit on 25th September. Our Bookings Officers will help schedule your day. If you’re interested in your group attending the careers showcase only, get in touch and we will offer you a timed slot. Places are limited, so please book in advance.
