Cameron Homes has handed over a £2,500 donation to a Staffordshire school to help promote an exciting event which will be attended by over 1000 students.
Cameron is providing sponsorship to help the new John Taylor Free School in Tatenhill, Burton on Trent, stage a Big Bang Fair on February 12 to celebrate the official opening of the new campus.
The event promotes careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) related industries and includes workshops on a range of topics, including drone flying and bridge building and a planetarium.
There will also be an exhibition hall for students to explore with interactive stands from top UK and international companies where students from primary and senior schools across the region can talk to leading scientists.
The main presentation will be delivered by Simon Watts from Ready Steady Science; a regular contributor to TV, radio and web and best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature’s Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death.
Sonya Bagley, Marketing Executive for Cameron Homes, which is building a development of 70 homes at the Lawnswood development near Tatenhill, said that the firm was pleased to be providing backing for such an innovative day.
“We are a forward-thinking business which is keen to be involved in the local community and is continually encouraging young people to consider the construction industry as a career so we are happy to be sponsoring the Big Bang Fair.”
Head of School Mrs Sue Plant commented: “We are delighted to be hosting the first John Taylor Multi Academy Trust’s Big Bang event.
“STEAM is an important part of our curriculum and we are excited to be able to inspire students with the possibilities that Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths can bring.
“We are extremely grateful to Cameron Homes for their kind sponsorship which has enabled us to facilitate such a fantastic opportunity for our young people.”
