#ThisIsSTEM Career Talks

Over the last year we hosted our #ThisIsSTEM career talk, where we explored a new pillar of STEM each month.

We were joined by professionals in a range of #STEM careers. To begin in February, we were joined by Rahima Ahmed to discuss a career in Civil Engineering. In March we were joined by Ciaran Egan from Abbott to learn more about a career in Science. In April, we were joined by Niamh Donnelly from Akara robotics to discuss her career in tech and finally, in May we were joined by John Woods to discuss how he uses maths in his role at Informatica.

The full recordings of all of these career talks including the live questions from students are accessible below.
