Activity Case Study 4: Danny Finn
In this STEMNET activity case study, STEM Ambassador Danny Finn describes how valuable engineering role models can be for students.
Danny describes a careers event called 'What's my line?' which gave pupils a chance to speak to professionals about their work. For this event, he brought pictures and models to illustrate his engineering work at an oil refinery. Such stimulus materials spark interest and questions.
“Becoming a STEM Ambassador is the perfect opportunity to offer advice to young people in a similar position – unsure of the routes in and surrounded by the myths of what limited options there are in engineering."
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
