As part of its IMechE accredited MPDS scheme, graduate engineers at Ardmore Craig undertake numerous STEM activities in the North East every year.
Over the last few weeks graduates as well as the management team have been in action at both primary and secondary schools educating students on the work of an engineer and the rewarding career a route in the Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics fields can have.
First up was a visit to a secondary school in Newton Aycliffe where students studying engineering were given an overview of the work the company does in the offshore sector and the opportunities available to engineers in the North East of England.
Following this was a presentation and demonstration of Ardmore Craig’s trenching and subsea boulder clearance tool designs to a class of enthusiastic primary school children. Using some scaled models, sand and stones the class were able to witness the use of the technology and its purpose in the comfort of a class room.
Finally, the Ardmore Craig team provided support to another North East school, eager to make use of the latest 3D CAD technologies in the class room. STEM ambassador Andy Stevenson commented that the commitment of the Company to supporting STEM activities was a win – win situation allowing the business to give something back to the local community, helping to raise the aspirations of young people in the region while also giving its graduates and the wider team the opportunity to continually improve their speaking, presentation and teaching skills.
