Schools to shine with science awards at Discovery Park
Posted on 17/11/16
The initiative celebrates bright young minds, promoting science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), who will showcase projects at the Dragon’s Den-inspired event at Discovery Park.
The annual event is split into three categories: innovation, investigation and invention, and the finalists from schools around the county will be filmed before the event. The initiative will provide the contestants with the opportunity to win a £500 cash prize, experience prizes in some of the most innovative companies in the area and trophies– if they can sway impress the judges.
The KM Charity initiative aims to promote STEM among youngsters, and Discovery Park is delighted to be hosting the event again.
On Tuesday, November 1st, the site welcomed representatives of sponsors of the event, including Pfizer, Beneden Hospital Trust, Prendon Panels and Integrated Technologies Limited.
Kimberley Anderson, Corporate Services Manager at Discovery Park, said:
“It’s really important to encourage youngsters to pursue a career in science, it’s so exciting to see such rich creativity showcased at the KM Bright Spark Awards.
“We at Discovery Park are really privileged to be involved in the awards again, it’s an absolute pleasure to be able to host the event which inspires young minds in STEM, giving the students the opportunity to enrich their learning and, hopefully, open a door to a rewarding career. This is a vision close to our hearts and Discovery Park can help achieve the vision”
