All About STEM & Unilever provide a Bright Future for regional schools!

On the 13th, 14th and 15th of November 2018, All About STEM facilitated a three day event for regional schools to take part in the Unilever Bright Future Programme hosted by Unilever Port Sunlight.

Attending students were invited to choose a challenge and then take 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 2019 to the Unilever Bright Future Celebration Day for judging.

Unilever employees & 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 schools taking part in the Bright Future Programme had the opportunity to register their interest for The Big Bang North West & to sign-up with CREST. When students have completed their Bright Future challenge, their projects can be entered into the Big Bang UK Young Scientist & Engineers Competition and used toward a CREST Award.

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, see you all in March!”

“A big thank you to Unilever for their support, along with the Bright Future Programme we have huge plans for the next 12 months. 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.”
