All About STEM NEWS
All About STEM & Unilever provide a Bright Future for 30 schools!
A total of thirty schools took part in numerous ‘hands-on’ Unilever activities which introduced them to processing, packaging, the environment and more!
Following their visit, students have the opportunity to design their own environmentally friendly/sustainable product and return in March 2018 to the Unilever Bright Future Celebration Day for judging.
Unilever STEM Ambassadors hosted various Bright Future Workshops including: A schools challenge, consumer technical insight, digital technology sessions, a virtual shop, social media, packaging & recycling, sustainable living & global packaging development.
“Unilever believe there has never been a better time to create a better future for our children; a world where everyone has enough food to eat and no child goes to bed hungry. Where every child lives to their fifth birthday and has the right to a happy childhood. Where every home has enough water to drink and to wash, cook and clean and where everybody can enjoy life today while protecting the planet for future generations.”
“Unilever Bright Future is a platform that helps unite and amplify the efforts of a growing community of people who believe it is possible to build a world where everyone lives well and lives sustainably. Who recognise we can only achieve this if we all work together to do small actions every day that make a real difference and who inspire others to join in making this the way everyone chooses to live.” [Unilever]
All students entering the Bright Future Programme are also encouraged to enter their projects in The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition. Rainford High School took 1st prize for their 2016-2017 Bright Future project. They entered The Big Bang UK Competition at Big Bang North West, are now finalists and have just returned from showcasing their work at Big Bang @ Parliament!
All About STEM Managing Director Michelle Dow said, “As both All About STEM and the team behind The Big Bang North West, our mission is to facilitate events across the region that inspire STEM and engage students. We are so proud to support the Bright Future Programme again and see so many young people learning about sustainability, product design and development and the amazing STEM careers available with Unilever. We can’t wait to see all of the inspiring projects!”
“A big thank you to Unilever for their support, along with the Bright Future Programme they were a huge part of The Big Bang North West event in 2017. They truly are a company dedicated to promoting and enriching STEM learning and we are happy to collaborate with them to encourage that, along with a better, sustainable future.”
