Jacobs’ STEM Workshop - 23/9/2021

Today we welcomed Jacobs, the civil engineering and consultancy company, appointed by Essex County Council to deliver Chelmsford’s Army and Navy roundabout redevelopment.

Year 10/12 students recieved presentations from a number of experts in the fields of Digital Virtualisation, Transport Planning, Engineering, Stakeholder Engagement, Communications and Environment.

These workshops provided a fantastic insight into #STEM careers, showcasing industry knowledge and technology, encouraging and informing students regarding the possibilities of a career in these fields, with some surprising outcomes. Who knew that a civil engineering company, also relies on employees as experts in the fields of; digital communications, journalism, human resurces etc as well as the usual engineering experts!

The virtual reality goggles workshop was a definite favourite of most students! 

Students were also offered a chance to vote for their preferred option of redevelopment plan design at the end of the session.

We shall certainly be looking into the careers / work experience opportunities available at Jacobs to aid our students too!
