In2science UK CBG Workshop – starting a career in STEM

We are working in partnership with the charity In2science UK. Due to poverty and social background being huge obstacles for young people to obtain a career within the STEM industry, the charity sets out to help overcome these barriers. Working with industry professionals, In2science UK provides young people from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to gain practical insight, knowledge, and confidence. Students work alongside and attend workshops hosted by industry professionals.

We have set up a workshop and present to a group of 16-18 year old students who are interested in starting a career within STEM.

The structure we lay out for our In2science UK workshops are as follows:

Key questions we get asked from students are:

Try to attend a summer vocational placement to make contacts and understand whether you enjoy the industry. Microsoft Excel is a very useful tool for calculations and efficiently analysing data, so we recommend that students obtain a good knowledge on its abilities.

The Khan Academy has numerous free online tutorials on various STEM subjects.

New regulations (June 2022) have just been put into place and as a company, we are trying to learn how they will affect our future designs. In 2025 the ‘Future Homes Standard’ will be released, and this will change how we design domestic buildings.


The feedback that we have received from attendees after our workshops:
