From education to employment

BLOODHOUND announces supersonic FE ambassadors

Supersonic car project BLOODHOUND has announced three new education ambassadors to help promote STEM skills across the UK.

David Beynon, Justine Squitieri and Lee Mackinson, all of FE staff education services provider Protocol National, which also sponsors BLOODHOUND, aim to use the car as a platform to inspire learners.

After accompanying the BLOODHOUND team earlier this year to Lewisham College, London, Mr Beynon said: “The students were clearly enthralled by the car and the project surrounding it, and were keen to learn more about what STEM skills went into its development. This kind of enthusiasm is exactly what the project aims to generate.

“I’ve seen firsthand what a difference a visit from BLOODHOUND can make to students’ views on STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. I and my colleagues are proud to be a part of a project that inspires a new generation of inventors and problem-solvers, equipped to help solve the world’s problems and work towards a technologically brilliant future.”
