Edinburgh International Science Festival will be hosting the Careers Hive Open Day at the National Museum of Scotland on Saturday 4 March.
Careers Hive was developed by Edinburgh International Science Festival in response to the rising tide of young people electing not to continue with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) from the end of broad education –despite high demand for individuals with skills and knowledge in these areas from industry.
Careers Hive targets pupils in S1-S3 – the point where they start to make decisions about their future by choosing the subjects they want to study. This year 41 schools from 12 local authorities are participating. On a visit to Careers Hive at the National Museum of Scotland, these young learners are guided through three hour-long experiences by a Science Communicator.
