Doncaster based Agemaspark have signed up to exhibit at Get up to Speed with STEM, Yorkshire’s largest annual employer-inspired science, technology, engineering, manufacturing (STEM) and construction showcase for young people with over 3,500 booked to attend so far.
Taking place at Magna Science Adventure Centre on Wednesday 23rd March, the event gives young people the chance to see some of the UK’s most exciting STEM inventions and meet the people who design, build and operate them. Attendees can also speak to a host of businesses, inventors, apprentices and education providers on the future of these industries and the career opportunities within them.
Get up to Speed with STEM also gives companies taking part the opportunity to showcase their business, highlight career opportunities and current vacancies and meet with other businesses, whilst helping to address the skills gap in STEM-related industries.
Paul Stockhill, Managing Director of Agemaspark said “An important part of Agemaspark’s development has been investment in apprenticeships, training the next generation of engineers and attracting further future generations is an important part of sustaining the manufacturing sector in the UK. 80% of our workforce came to me from school including my senior managers and toolmakers. We are a founder partner of the Doncaster utc and believe that teaching young people at an early stage of their education will bring the best out of them.”
