***News Just In***A report commissioned by EDF and published by Jobs of the Future last year shows that science, research, engineering and technology jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of other occupations in the UK creating 142,000 jobs between now and 2023. The study aims to change the perception of science, technology, engineering and maths subjects and inspire more young women to consider associated STEM careers. Even though there has been a growth in the number of women graduating in STEM core subjects they still only represent 24% of the total market and only 15% in Computer Science.
The report used new analysis of government data and examines trends in the growth of STEM jobs. The research predicts that computing skills will be the most in demand with the highest number of new jobs (25%). Jobs in technology will grow twice as fast as other careers (6% rather than 3%) driven by digital innovation which is why there is a national push to encourage children to investigate STEM subjects at primary school.
Bricks 4 Kidz classes use Lego Education’s WeDo 2.0 which is designed for Key Stage 2. With WeDo 2.0 kids will explore, create, and share their findings as they build, program, and modify projects while working collaboratively. With this innovative solution, we boost children’s confidence to ask questions and solve problems by putting scientific discovery and computing skills in their hands.
