STEM Subject - Science Technology Engineering Mathematics - black logo

There’s been a lot of talk of STEM recently – but what exactly is it? Simply put, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, and they all play a vital role in the way we work and our quality of life. Think of the invention of vaccines, TVs, cars, even skyscrapers – all these were incredible STEM breakthroughs.

It’s not just science and tech industries that use STEM skills though – fashion designers, PR execs and even pastry chefs also rely on them to do their jobs effectively. We call this set of skills the STEM 7.

“Being in the booth is quite zen to be honest. You just get in with the panel that you’re going to be spraying, your spray gun all hooked up, mask down, and you’re just away with your own thoughts, spraying away until you get the job done. It’s quite peaceful, like if you do go in there and you do have any negative thoughts or anything like that, you’ll come out and leave and you’ll have peace of mind by then.” Harrison, Motor Vehicle and Automotive.
