We regularly hold talks and run exciting projects in schools and universities across Scotland, with the aim of inspiring students to pursue science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
Recently, our electro-optics manager, Tracey Skivington, met the Female Engineering Society at Glasgow University to provide students with the chance to find out exactly what it is like to work in the engineering industry.
Lisa Gray, a printed circuit board engineering apprentice also returned to where she was formerly taught at West Coats Primary School to give students an opportunity to learn about engineering and give pupils the chance to play with Ozobots, which is an interactive way to give pupils a basic understanding of computer programming.
Braidhurst High School also benefited from a visit from one of our system engineers, Alistair Grant, who spoke to students at their careers fair about engineering and the fantastic graduate, apprenticeship and internship opportunities that are available at Thales.
