In association with the STEM Hub, a group of NPL staff described their careers, NPL work and specialist areas to groups of primary and secondary schoolchildren in a series of morning assemblies.
This is NPL and STEM Hub’s first such activity and we were thrilled with the take up. STEM Hub covers the South East (Essex, Kent, Surrey and Sussex) and some participants came from further afield.
Up to 40 attended each session, with each participant sharing their screen with classes, year groups or the whole school. Across the week around 4,500 pupils took part.

Recorded versions of the talks will be shared for more audiences to view in our Career Talks Section
For NPL STEM Ambassadors it was a great opportunity to brush up their presentation skills and give something back. Well done team:
