Careers Hive Open Day

Careers Hive 2017 open day

Careers Hive will run from Feb 27 to Mar 4, and while the week of Careers Hive is reserved for school groups, we have decided to hold an open day for the public on Saturday 4th March at National Museum Scotland due to hugely popular demand!

Careers Hive is an immersive careers education event designed to give high school students a new way to think about their futures. It highlights the opportunities available to those who study STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), as well as the cross-disciplinary skills and subjects that can support and enhance STEM careers.

This free open day will give young people, their family and friends and those who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend with a school group, the chance to get involved, meet volunteers from STEM companies, explore interactive activities and get hands on with specialist equipment. There is also the opportunity to hear from inspiring STEM professionals across a range of industries as they talk about the different routes they took to get to where they are today.

Please see the attached flier for more information, and share this with your pupils, parent groups, or indeed any groups or individuals who you think it may be of interest to. You can also link to our social media by using #careershive and tagging @EdSciFest.

You have any questions prior to the event then just give us a ring on 0131 553 0321.

Looking forward to seeing you at Careers Hive!
