A STEM careers partnership between Siemens, science presenter Fran Scott, GSA and state schools has been nominated for a WorldSkillsUK Diversity and Inclusion Heroes Award 2020.
The awards honour, celebrate, and shine a light on individuals and organisations who are going above and beyond, championing diversity and inclusion within their organisations and the wider technical education sector.
See Me is an interactive, curriculum-linked stage show, created by Siemens and BBC science presenter Fran Scott, and delivered to children throughout the UK with the help of the Girls’ Schools Association. The show explores ground-breaking contributions to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), taking the audience on a journey into the world of STEM with captivating live stage experiments. It also celebrates diversity within the STEM community, busting myths and misconceptions and exploring some of the perceived barriers to pursuing a STEM career.
To date, the project has reached approximately 4000 young people from state and independent schools. It was shortlisted for the 2019 Social Mobility Awards and won the 2019 STEM Inspiration Award for outstanding contribution for widening participation, diversity and inclusion in STEM.
The WorldSkillsUK Diversity and Inclusion Heroes Awards ceremony – hosted in partnership with Coca-Cola EP – will be held virtually on 28 January: book your place here.
