It will give the scholars extracurricular learning and inspirational experiences, through vocational training, study and masterclasses.
Over 100 applications were received from students at Mulberry Academy Shoreditch, Mulberry School for Girls and Mulberry UTC for the 20 places available in Years 10 and 12.
Through a rigorous selection and interview process, done remotely, the first cohort of STEM scholars were awarded places on this year's programme.
The first event for the 40 successful students, alongside Headteacher Dr Vanessa Ogden, was a Careers Talk on Saturday with our Technical Director James Allison and Chief People Officer, Paul Mills.
It also included four of the team's past and present graduates, who have volunteered to be part of the STEM Academy programme. The event was designed to introduce the students to the team and inspire them, as they set out to make their decisions on future education and careers.
The team's graduates talked through their roles and the educational choices they made, as well as sharing some insights into what it's like to work for a Championship-winning F1 team.
