The Faculty of Science and Technology joins the celebration of the National STEM week

Emma Jenkins (Archaeology), Genoveva Esteban and Ian Chapman (Environmental Sciences) joined other researchers for the “Meet the Scientists” event at Thomas Hardye School (Dorchester) to celebrate the National Science & Engineering Week (NSEW) – a ten-day national programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK aimed at people of all ages to celebrate science, engineering and technology and its importance in our lives. 450 Year 9 and Year 10 students talked to the 30 scientists that came from across the country, representing a wide variety of science disciplines to speed-network with students and inspire them with their knowledge and enthusiasm. NSEW 2014 takes place from 14 – 23 March, it is coordinated by the British Science Association and is funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
