Great Torrington school recently hosted another successful Stem event for the third year running in which Greenfield were delighted to be asked to support the event. This year’s event saw in excess of 500 students from 16 schools across North Devon coming together to attend the STEM event (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). The importance in promoting engineering to students is to show them the exciting opportunities available to them in STEM based subjects. This year Greenfield took along laser-cut Disney WALLE fold-up pen holders for the students to interact and fold by hand before taking them away to show their families. This lets the students see manufacturing flexibility first hand and it also helps reinforce the fact that a leading contract manufacturing company like Greenfield Engineering are offering high tech career opportunities in manufacturing locally.
“All the students took great pleasure in the interacting with our young engineer on the stand, also enjoying the activities with folding the metalwork models. We were very pleased to be invited for the third year to support the event. Hopefully we have done our bit to inspire the next generation of engineers’ Colin Hamilton – Greenfield training coordinator.
