As part of this year’s Midlands Science Festival which takes place across the Midlands from November 13th to 20th, a series of high value careers talks will take place in local schools. Local development company Midlands Science have arranged to bring a number of role models with science or technology backgrounds into Midlands’ secondary schools to deliver these career talks and demonstrate in a hands on way why a career in science is a good choice.
Volunteers for this initiative are from life sciences organisations and technology companies, as well as from research centres and academia. Many of the speakers are past pupils of the schools they will attend.
Earlier this year we enjoyed a series of similar talks from an inspiring speaker with Midlands roots, Dr Mary Guinan, who told the story of her amazing science career as a medical detective! (see photo)
