Digging deeper into STEM in Whitby

Monday, 18 March, 2013 - 10:30 to 14:30

NYBEP Ltd and York Potash have teamed up to organise an event for young people aged 14-19. Taking place during National Science & Engineering Week, it is for young people who want to dig a little deeper and find out why STEM is so important and discover where it can take them in their career. WHO IS IT FOR? Young people who are innovative thinkers, problem solvers and who are interested in STEM based futures. It will be particularly useful for students who are able in science, technology, engineering and maths. The event will showcase many career opportunities and demonstrate that STEM futures are exciting, varied and feature across a wide range of industries. The event will take place during National Science & Engineering Week at the Whitby Pavilion on 18th March 2013. It is open to schools and colleges (students aged 14-19) who can register to visit either session: Morning session: 10:00 – 12:00 Afternoon session: 12:30 – 14:30 We are inviting local employers, organisations and training providers to provide, activities that will inspire, and information on careers to the young people. We anticipate young people will visit each activity/information in groups on a rolling programme with each activity lasting around 15 minutes. To find out more please contact Yvonne Emerson at NYBEP on 01904 587616 or email
