Get up to Speed (GUTS), the region’s largest engineering and skills event specifically for young people returns to the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham this month.
This hugely popular interactive event is designed to showcase science, technology, engineering and manufacturing and its employers to young people, parents and educators in the South Yorkshire region and beyond. Attracting over 2,100 attendees in 2017, the event aims to inspire; build confidence and knowledge in these sectors as a great place to work in a fun and interactive way.
The event started in 2011 and moved to Magna in 2015. The 2018 event takes place on April 18.
John Barber CEO of the work-wise Foundation and Chair of the GUTS Steering Group, said: “Get up to Speed is free to visit and is designed to inspire and inform through a wide range of hands-on activities, showcasing many different businesses from traditional to advanced technologies plus support and education organisations. For the 2018 event we will extend the focus to science and technology as well as engineering and manufacturing as we recognise the ever changing range of opportunities opening up to young people.”
