  • STEM Education and Skills at Westminster

    15 August 2019

    On 8 July, Rachel Exley attended her first Parliamentary and Scientific Committee Discussion meeting, at Portcullis house in Westminster. The title of the meeting was “STEM education and skills” and provided a forum for discussion between Members of Parliament and representatives of scientific bodies, industry and academia on how to inspire and engage young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects in order to address the skills shortage in the future UK workforce. The focus was particularly on engineering, and a diverse panel of speakers were invited to share their perspectives. I attended the meeting to gather information and identify ways the Microbiology Society might contribute to this agenda.
