Network Telecom announced as STEM mentors for the second year in a row
Shropshire business telecoms and IT provider, Network Telecom, has announced that the company will be providing STEM mentors for the 2020 STEM Challenge.
STEM ambassadors Becky Homersley and Jake Trubridge from the Telford-based business communications provider will be mentoring a team of year 8s from The Grove School in Market Drayton. The team will be competing against schools from across Shropshire to design and build a product, using the elements of STEM, that has a positive impact on people’s emotional wellbeing and/or mental health.
Following a win at last year’s STEM challenge in the category for the Best Operating Model, the Network Telecom team is excited to be part of the challenge for the second consecutive year.
Becky Homersley, one of Network Telecom’s STEM Ambassadors, commented “It’s important for us, as a technology company, to encourage local children to look at potential careers in the STEM subjects.”
The challenge this year will be focused on creating a product to assist with mental health and will be judged at an awards day taking place on 3 July at the Marches Centre of Manufacturing and Technology where Network Telecom and its STEM team will demonstrate the product it has created in a bid to win one of the eight awards up for grabs.
