Today Superior Seals attended the second Big Bang event hosted by Bournemouth and Poole College (STEM Centre). The event encouraged employers to promote science, technology, engineering and maths to school children in short ‘hands on’ sessions. Superior Seals took Lego Mindstorm Robots, this allowed the children to learn basic programming and expand their thinking; all the children successfully completed a “mini” course and won a trophy! The event was very popular and hopefully inspired some young engineers of the future.
Today two Ambassadors, Susanna Perkins and Ashleigh Baker from Superior Seals attended the women in engineering conference at Bournemouth and Poole College. The afternoon was very successful in highlighting the importance of engineering in today’s society and the need to encourage young women into technical based careers. The attendees comprised of local female teachers, STEM ambassadors and business representatives; all who attended were extremely enthusiastic and keen to support future women in engineering. Whilst at the conference Susanna and Ashleigh discussed their apprenticeship scheme and what benefits and opportunities it’s offered them.
Today Superior Seals invited fourteen students from West Moors Middle School into the company to meet their apprenticeship ambassadors. The event proved to be a highly successful event with the students spending some time learning about polymer science before embarking on a CNC machining and robotics project. The objective of the robotics was that the students would see a trophy being manufactured on the CNC lathes and milling machines before competing for the trophy in a robotics challenge. The challenge involved the students programming their robot to complete a series of challenges in… Read More
Today four first year apprentices from Superior Seals were thrown in the deep end at a busy careers convention at Glenmoor School. Having only just started their apprenticeship they were able to explain to parents and students why they chose an apprenticeship and how it’s been so far. It was a great turn out with lots of interest in apprenticeships! Go Apprentices Mean Business!!
Today three Ambassadors attended the Big Bang event hosted by Bournemouth and Poole College (STEM Centre). Susanna Perkins from Superior, Ben Judge from Sunseeker and Joe Manning also from Sunseeker presented information on Polymer Science at work and a detailed account of their apprenticeship programme. The event was aimed at Year 8 students who have an interest in STEM subjects. The College thanked the young Ambassadors for their participation in what was a very successful event.
