News - 23rd Jun 2022

Velocity 2022 is a new immersive careers event promoting STEM opportunities through interactive demos, workshops and presentations from local employers, organised by The Heart of the South West Careers Hub and hosted by Exeter College at their future skills centre.

30 of our Year 9 students spent a fun morning exploring the different zones at the event including an exhibition with stands from local STEM employers and education providers and the engineering hangar & workshop – featuring interactive engineering and maths activities looking at topics such as airplane design, virtual welding and surveying techniques.

We hope that this event will help to inspire more of our students to consider Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Maths as choices for further education and careers.
