Activity Case Study 14: Vicki Hodges
This STEMNET activity case study describes the work of Vicki Hodges as a STEM Ambassador. In a wide range of activities, she has helped to build a space station in an infant school, worked at careers fairs for older students and lectured at universities.
Vicki has worked with all age groups and enjoys sharing her passion for her work. She wants young people to understand that having STEM qualifications develops skills, such as problem solving, which will always make them employable.
“I want young people who are choosing their options to understand that with a STEM qualification you’ll always be employable thanks to the problem solving and technical skills you will develop.”
