Year 10 careers info session - Thomas Tallis, Kidbrooke, SE London
Not sure whats worth putting here, so will just do a brain dump...
This was my second STEM activity (first was as a judge on the Olympic themed competition at STEM HQ).
Got the impression that it would be an informal discussion session, but in the end turned out to be a bit more formal than I first thought - there were 2 of us STEM ambassadors and we did a joint presentation about our careers - subjects needed to take and experience gained.
Year 10 were getting a day of higher education/career info - morning was about 6th form taster sessions and university info sessions. The afternoon was about 10 or so different subject sessions - eg dramatic arts, journalism, IT, Engineering and our STEM session.
For some reason I thought they'd be more inquisitive than they were and I need to prepare better myself about things to bring up to fill those quiet moments and/or little exercises to get everyone involved.
Not sure I did a brilliant job of promoting my career/STEM - at least I didnt get booed off nor did anyone fall asleep.
