Julie Feest, Chief Executive of EDT said:
“We were blown away by the candidates for this year’s awards. As always, it’s been a pleasure to celebrate young people’s talent as well as shine a light on the partners, schools and sponsors who are working tirelessly to broaden engagement between young people and the industry.
The level of talent, passion and drive of the young people who won is admirable, and there’s nothing better than seeing so many young people engaged with opportunities and careers in STEM. Equally, it’s encouraging to see the range of opportunities available to these young people thanks to partners, schools and sponsors, as their support helps provide vital and equal access to STE(A)M activities.
There is still a long way to go when it comes to inspiring young people to consider a career in STEM, but this year’s awards ceremony proves that we have certainly started to make waves in this area.”
