Event description


STEM and Food and Drink?

STEM subjects are vital within the food and drink industry but not a lot of people put the two together.

Food and drink is one of our best-performing sectors and we export our whisky, seafood, meat, baking and other produce to over 105 countries.

We’re also doing world-class work around food and drink ideas and innovation, and new trends, how we manage the environment, scientific developments and convenience. That’s something to be proud of and it’s also leading to great career and progression opportunities.

What will the event cover?

Run in partnership with National food education providers and industry this event will demonstrate: the skills required by employers, the relevance of STEM curriculum subjects to different careers and progression pathways and career routes available in this dynamic and exciting sector.

Helping you to help your students to be part of something great.

Who should attend?

STEM teachers and lecturers, career influencers, SDS and DYW staff.
