More than 1500 students from local educational establishments are expected to visit the ‘Big Bang’ Industry Awareness STEM Event being organised in the Wales Rally GB Deeside Service Park 12-15 November. Hundreds more will be engaged through a pair of special design competitions which are open to all secondary schools and colleges in Wales.
“Engaging with education is just one of the many ways that Wales Rally GB contributes to life within Wales,” explained Ben Taylor, managing director of Wales Rally GB.
“The location of the Service Park, right next to the Toyota Engine Plant, and the presence of the world’s top WRC rally teams provides us with a fantastic opportunity to enthuse the next generation. These schemes are exciting ways to illustrate the attractions of a career within motor sport or the wider automotive industry.”
The two-day Big Bang fair will give those attending an exciting and memorable experience that will inspire and motivate them to continue with the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). No fewer than 36 companies including Airbus, Emerson & Comtek, JCB, Qioptiq and Toyota will be providing interactive displays and activities that will demonstrate STEM in action in Welsh Industry today.
