STEM at Atkins

There is a shortage of professionals in our industry, and it is vital that we get more young people interested now, to protect the future of our industry. We really love our jobs, and we are really passionate about passing on our enthusiasm to young people, and encouraging more people into our industry. After all, the work that we do can really make the world a better place, and affect people’s lives, and that leads to a really rewarding career.

Watch this short video explaining how Atkins is helping to inspire the next generation of engineers through STEM networks in schools.

Our interactive STEM Lab has opened in Epsom

In May 2017, Secretary of State Chris Grayling officially opened the STEM Lab in Epsom – an exciting, interactive space that we’ve created in conjunction with our new office development to help young people to learn more about design, engineering and construction.

The space is a purposeful mix of digital and physical experiences that work together to bring to life the skills that are needed – as well as the challenges that need to be considered – when constructing a new office or building.

The room gives visitors the chance to use virtual reality headsets to go on a tour around the new office building, and play a touch screen game that challenges them to build a new office block as quickly and efficiently as possible. A dedicated sensory area also lets them take in the sights, sounds and smells of the development, as well as how it feels.

Augmented reality hot spots that are dotted across both spaces provide additional content, including a video of Atkins’ vision of what engineering will be like in 2020.

The STEM Lab will be used by Epsom’s 150 STEM ambassadors to host young people in and around Epsom, as well as further afield from places such as Guildford, Richmond and Kingston.

Mike McNicholas, managing director of the UK & Europe’s Infrastructure division, said: “We hope that the STEM Lab will make the vital connections between learning and careers so children can make the right choices now to enable them to make the most of opportunities in their long-term futures.”
