Developing the Young Workforce Dumfries & Galloway (DYWDG) is delighted to announce that they are once again working with partners, Food and Drink Federation (FDF), Scottish Engineering CITB and The Crichton Trust to present a follow up to last year’s hugely successful #STEM event – BANG GOES DG! #BGDG
As with 2019, the aims include not only informing young people about how #Science, #Technology, #Engineering, #Mathematics are involved in business and in numerous sectors, but #BGDG also allows businesses the opportunity to showcase who they are, what they do and illustrate the many opportunities that exist around young people in D&G.
The 2020 event already promises to be a bigger and faster paced day to inform and inspire our young people.With 2020 being a big year for Digital technology in Scotland, we are also looking to present as many Digital elements as possible. We are particularly keen to ask business to look into providing a ’20 reasons why …’ feature as part of their activities and from which you can highlight 20 interesting points about your business or sector that gives facts, figures, mythbusters or anything else you want to illustrate …. And if you can do this via QR codes for your area so that the children can download particular pictures, videos or pieces of info as part of this – fantastic!
It is primarily aimed at S1/2/3 pupils but as with last year College/University students and Home schoolers are also very welcome
