Coventry University hosted a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Master class for over 300 17 year old School and College students on 26th July 2013. The day provided activities and meetings designed to show the livelier side of what a STEM career can involve.
The event has been hosted several times. The day involved contributions from engineering departments within the Faculty of Engineering and Computing. This year it included an air powered racer from the Automotive Department, a bridge building activity from the Civil Engineering department and a careers talk from industry representatives.
The contribution from the Aerospace and Electrical department highlight the FP7 Fly Higher project along with some key activities to interest and hopefully inspire.
