Patent firm, EIP, have recently run a series of activities in schools to promote Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering (STEM) subjects.
The visits have been part of the STEMNET scheme, which places those from businesses into schools to teach pupils about the range of careers available to them with STEM experience, such as a career as a patent attorney.
Ben Hoyle, senior associate at EIP and STEM Ambassador, said: ‘STEM skills are essential for our patent clients. We are repeatedly told of the difficulty in employing skilled scientists and engineers. By running these activities we can hopefully inspire future generations to train for a STEM career and build a vibrant, innovative society.’
