Sea Cadets Marine Engineering Pathway - STEM Workshops

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old)
We invite schools to take part in our free Sea Cadets Marine Engineering Pathway (MEP) workshops. We are passionate about inspiring young people to engage with STEM subjects and highlight the career opportunities in Marine Engineering. We have specially created three practical workshop sessions covering: Buoyancy, Drag & Propulsion & Hydraulics. Each workshop links to the S1, S2 & S3 Science, Technology and PSHE curricula.

These three fun, hands-on sessions teach pupils about the principles of engineering. Pupils are required to work in teams to design and create solutions to practical engineering problems. They are guaranteed to learn and have fun at the same time! Please see the attached flyer for further information

We can offer schools up to two, two-hour-long workshops on the day accommodating up to 40 pupils in each session depending on the space available. Each workshop should take place in a classroom or similar. Our instructor will require 30 minutes before the first workshop and 30 minutes after the final workshop to set up and tidy away.

For an enhanced experience, we can also bring our purpose built Marine Engineering (ME) Pod on the school grounds (logistics permitting). The ME Pod is fully equipped with both a working and a cross-sectional marine engine. It offers a hands-on, immersive experience for 4-8 pupils at a time and is suitable for pupils with a specific interest in engineering careers.

Why Uni is not the only answer into the Video Games industry

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
I've been a professional video games translator for more than 15 years and I started my own company recently. I never went to Uni and I grew up in a deprived area. I think my experiences and my story outlining my path to where I am now could help young people to understand that not going to Uni is not the end at all, that there are many options and even if the path won't be easy, it's worthy. Providing this personal account into a very successful industry will allow young people to see a variety of options available to them and may provide reassurance and suggestions to those unsure of their next steps.
