Dstl supporting STEM careers at DSEI 2017

The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) will be supporting and encouraging young people to take up exciting and rewarding careers in STEM a at the People and Skills day at DSEI 2017 in London today.

Dstl is encouraging those interested in a STEM career to visit its stand and try out some hands-on experiments including a laboratory dexterity challenge and a colour vision team challenge.

Dstl’s STEM Ambassadors will be available to demonstrate the science and technology behind the latest high-tech kit that supports the defence and security of the UK. They’ll also be able to offer careers advice to young people who are interested in pursuing a career in a STEM subject.

Dstl offers apprenticeships, student placements and graduate opportunities in a broad range of STEM disciplines.

Dstl’s STEM Outreach Manager Jaime Williamson said: “It’s important that students understand the opportunities available to them if they continue to pursue their STEM studies.

“At Dstl, our work involves solving fascinating problems for the defence and security of the UK, often with life-saving results. We need experts in all STEM subjects, and we hope to meet the next generation of problem-solvers at DSEI.”
