“The initiative is the latest London-wide project enlisting…the support of at least 20 main corporate organisations to help shape the hearts and minds of society’s future leaders”.
“The event is important as it provides an important platform to inspire, engage and excite young schoolchildren about Science & Engineering, which may lead them to pursuing a STEM based career in the future. For the older students it provides opportunities, training, mentoring and coaching to guide their futures moving forward and equip them with some of the less obvious skills they may require in their adult lives. More importantly is that the schoolchildren and students can take some inspiration and encouragement by engaging with staff from the organisations taking part that come from similar ethnic and diverse backgrounds. It is a Win for organisations trying to attract diverse talent and a Win for young people being better connected to industry”. -Jenny Garrett, Huffington Post
