Earlier this year, we registered our interest in being involved in a local STEM project called My STEM Pen Friends. It is run by Transpennine STEM Ambassador Hub, of which David and Alex – our Sales Director and Managing Director – are STEM ambassadors. Being a STEM ambassador means hosting, visiting and working with school pupils to inform and inspire them to consider studying STEM subjects.

As part of the project, we have since been partnered with Boyle & Petyt primary school, based in a local village called Beamsley. We have sent an introductory Powerpoint presentation to the school, giving a brief overview of who we are and what we do at JB Springs – providing the pupils with information they can ask us further about in their letters. Throughout November, we will correspond with the pupils through a series of letters – in which they can ask us all about the work we do and we can answer any questions they may have about springs. At the end of the month, JB Springs will visit the school to meet the pupils, give a presentation and take part in a Q&A session.

We are really looking forward to communicating with the children and seeing what they have to say!
