Greeate Diversity in STEM Event
Christ the King Sixth Forms were delighted to recently host a ‘Diversity in STEM’ event which was organised by ‘Greeate Careers’ and which was attended by students from across all three sites studying Physics and Engineering.
Cephas Williams and Deborah Obaseki of ‘Greeate Careers’ led a panel discussion which included Najwa Jawahar a Senior Structural Engineer at WSP, Anirban Basak a Principal Electrical Engineer at Aecom, Sara Kassam, Head of Sustainability for CIBSE and Diego Padilla Philipps an Associate at WSP.
After the panel discussion the students were divided into smaller groups for speed mentoring with our illustrious guests. The students learnt a great deal form the event and many said that this event had given them the confidence to pursue a career in engineering.
Thanks to ‘Greeate Careers’ and all our guest speakers from the Physics and Engineering students at CTK!
