Community Engagement to involve young people in STEM.
Our people-centric approach delivers success.

Services: People Management [Events]: Engaging the local Education & Skills Community

The Challenge:

As part of the Siemens Hull Project, the team required support with the engagement of the local education and skills communities across the city and the three neighbouring local authorities – the East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, to showcase how the company and its partners could support them and young people across the Humber.

Our approach:

JFA were recommended for the role, and provided a range of consultancy support to manage two regional events. The speakers included national and regional partners including the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Sheffield and Greenpower Education Trust electric formula car racing.

JFA liaised with Siemens’ colleagues across the country to establish support and materials available, co-ordinated and marketed the event, and carried out an event evaluation.

The Results:

Following fantastic feedback – 100% stating the events met their objective and 100% valuing/extremely valuing the days, the impact down the road has been phenomenal.

A Greenpower race event took place on Sunday 16th July 2017 at KCOM Stadium in Hull with IET Formula Goblin events (Ages 9-11) , IET Formula 24 and IET Formula 24+ races. Over 60 electric Kit Cars were built by schools, organisations and charities in the Humber region over the last 18 months, as a part of the Greenpower Education Trust’s Project Blyth. The project has been funded by the Careers and Enterprise company, as well as Green Port Hull, and is also supported by Siemens. Both the event and the exhibition were open to the public.

As a result of this amazing day we’re hopeful that even more young people will be inspired to take up STEM subjects in schools. Photos are on this link:
