Businesses from around the region gathered to celebrate the achievements of their successful apprenticeship schemes.  The Apprenticeship Awards acknowledged the hard work put in by the best employers and apprentices in the East Midlands.

Among the winners were Eakring-based Ashfield Electrical Rewinds and Installations, who celebrated winning the Small Employer of the Year Award and Rolls-Royce, based at Derby, who collected the Macro Employer of the Year Award.  A hugely successful night for the regions science and engineering businesses. 

Hosting the Awards Ceremony was former Blue Peter presenter Diane Louise Jordan.  The regular face on BBC’s Songs of Praise said she was delighted to be guest speaker on an evening dedicated to getting the best out of peoples’ potential.

She added: “I completely identify with what I see as the three ingredients essential for a successful apprenticeship: support, encouragement and hard work.

“The awards encapsulate those three things and it is a joy to see these young people and organizations getting the recognition they deserve.”

STEM Student Journalist Workshop

by JenniferD 14. May 2009 16:14

The East Midlands STEM Student Journalist Workshop took place at The University of Lincoln last Wednesday.  The event was a great success, and saw enthusiastic students leave ready to start reporting. 

The workshops consisted of:- 

Video Journalism, Brady Haran

Top tips for reporters, Louise Third 

Students from across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire attended. After the event, student reporter Rob Wells wrote an article for The Linc (The University of Lincoln's Newspaper) and a student from Da Vinci School in Derby commented on Brady's work on his You Tube site... 

"I'm a student that went to the Lincoln Uni STEM project...  I personally have never been a lover of science but these videos have opened up my eyes. Thank you so much :)."

STEM Student Journalist Henry Lau reports on Big Bang - The UK's Young Scientists and Engineers Fair

by Guest Blogger: STEM Student Journalist 9. March 2009 12:25

I was invited to Big Bang, the UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair to report as a STEM Student Journalist on behalf of Ignition* and the East Midlands STEM Partnership.  The Big Bang, held at the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre, in London, is a culturally and educationally important event with high profile dignitaries including HRH Duke of York and local MP Mark Field.  Over the 3 days, the event will see 6000 schoolchildren be inspired by their peers. 

My first stop was a wide-ranging exhibition of industries and associations who use science and engineering in their daily activities.  From nutritionists and sports scientists, who helped James Cracknell, Ben Fogle and Ed Coats reach the South Pole, to engineers modeling the flow of people for new stadiums yet to be built for the 2012 London Olympics. 

A brief stopover in the Careers Hotel gave me the chance to chat to several interesting scientists and engineers before wrapping up the day with ‘Visualised’, a show of everyday objects used in a dazzling and unusual way, to inspire students to look at science and engineering in a new light.
