On behalf of the Institute of Physics and in association with the Somerset Chamber, we would like to invite you to a Business Breakfast to discover Lab in a Lorry and the contribution it can make in addressing the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills gap in Somerset and the South West of England.
Please register your place via www.somerset-chamber.co.uk/events/somerset-chamber/lab-in-a-lorry-in-somerset-1085.htm#sthash.OEW1Ffay.dpuf
Lab in a Lorry is a mobile science laboratory that takes hands-on experiments to schools. It gives 11–14 year olds a taste of real science and associated careers, provides employees with an opportunity for personal development and offers organisations a chance to raise their profile while making a difference to their local community.
You can see Lab in a Lorry in action in this short film made by EDF Energy - http://youtu.be/Zj5pbynaFEE
Please join us for breakfast and a discussion with other local and regional businesses on how we can all work together to make a difference to the communities we live and work in. This event will be of particular interest to any company who recognises the importance of the STEM skills within their organisations. For example engineering and manufacturing companies.
You will also have the opportunity to see the lorry in action and talk to some of the volunteers who help to make the project a success.
Places for this event are free, but are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
