Mark Goldsack, director of the Department for International Trade Defence and Security Organisation (DIT DSO), has said Farnborough Friday will provide a real opportunity for the next generation to develop a deeper understanding of the impact of STEM.

Goldsack identified a “real need” for events such as Farnborough Friday, which has been developed to inspire and engage the industry’s future workforce.

Farnborough Friday will introduce the next generation of leaders, innovators, and pioneers to employers, providing valuable insight into the wealth of career opportunities available. As a trade day, Farnborough Friday opens the exhibition halls to more than 1,500 leading aerospace companies, many of which will host STEM-related activities on their stand.

STEM: crucial to keep UK at forefront of technological race

Goldsack said: “The future of our industry rests on STEM being widely understood, and is crucial to keep Britain at the front of the technological race.”

He added: “It’s a hugely important day for industry to address the major concerns about the future workforce. STEM subjects matter, they take you into hugely exciting careers, at the cutting-edge of really important developments.”

SMEs and prime organisations have the chance to show the younger generation, and individuals seeking to change career, the incredible opportunities available within their sectors.
