The STEM placement students are sending us weekly blogs all about their experience in the world of work!
Work experience is great and it provides students with many benefits whilst gaining skills and helping choose the right future career path for pupils. Having work experience on a Curriculum Vitae will make a person stand out to employers as they will notice they have motivation and a real passion for work. It will also help to boost a students confidence in themselves!
See how Ewan's getting on with his STEM placement!
"My first week of the SATRO Summer Placement has overall been great fun and a good learning experience. On Monday, our project started in the school; Magna Carta, where we carried out a plant survey, although it was a steep learning curve, by the end, I had learnt how to identify many plants. The next day we checked our Longworth traps which unfortunately had not captured anything. However, we had caught many moths overnight in our moth trap which we learnt the names of. Later in the day and on Wednesday and Thursday, we took part in pond dipping and sweep netting."
