Local young people were able to learn more about a variety of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) careers at the Generation Stevenage event launched by Member of Parliament Stephen McPartland and the Mayor and Youth Mayor.
Stephen McPartland MP said, "Stevenage is a major centre of excellence in science, engineering and technology with several global firms based in the town. I am delighted to be part of this event to help to develop the next generation of STEM skills and show young people what local career opportunities are available."
The careers event was supported by SETPOINT Hertfordshire, an education charity which aims to inspire young people about STEM. It was designed to show the range of STEM opportunities that are on offer to young people in the local area and brought together some of the largest employers including Airbus, Catapult, GSK and MBDA.
