On Wednesday 3 March over 60 partners came together for the sixth East Midlands STEM Partnership Forum Event, ‘STEM From Every Angle’, to look at how problem solving activities are essential for today's science, technology and engineering advancements. The event was sponsored by 3M Health Care Limited and took place at their Morley Street site in Loughborough.

Problem solving skills were explored in the context of the regions priority sectors - Transport Equipment, Food and Drink, Sustainable Construction and Healthcare and Bioscience. Barbara Linton from the National Centre for Excellence In the Teaching of Mathematics presented on how changes to the National Curriculum will try to address these skills. Dr Bryan Jackson, Chairman of emda gave the keynote address on just how important these skills are in today’s society, particularly in today’s’ economic climate.
