Broad Street, Reading
Broad Street in Reading will host this exciting free 2- day event to encourage Berkshire residents to find out more about job opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). This event, held in conjunction with GameWagon, social enterprise Against the Grain and various local employers will provide you with an insight into the gaming industry and feature a series of hands on workshops with items to make and take home. A custom-built gaming vehicle will give you the opportunity to take part in coding; steer a robot around a course and even pilot a drone! There will be a competition for the fastest lap time with the prize, courtesy of GameWagon to attend your birthday party or event.
This event will offer the chance for all ages from school leavers to those returning to work, currently unemployed or looking to change industries or mature workers considering retraining, to engage with local employers and discuss the opportunities available in Berkshire. You will also be able to receive advice and guidance on applying for jobs, reviewing CVs and talk further about jobs in STEM related industries.
