Supersonic engineers

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently visited the Bloodhound Supersonic Car Exhibition as part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week.

The Bloodhound Project is first and foremost an education project designed to inspire school students to take up careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by showcasing these subjects in the most exciting way possible. The goal of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car is to attain a 1,000 mph world land speed record using the pencil-shaped car, powered by a jet engine and a rocket.

The purpose of the exhibition in Westminster was to raise awareness amongst Parliamentarians of the need for more schoolchildren to study science, technology, engineering & maths to provide the highly skilled workforce to ensure the UK continues to compete internationally.   

Meg commented:

“We need to encourage more young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths to ensure we have the right skills to keep the country’s economy growing and tackle the big challenges facing the world.

Currently the number of people pursuing these careers is not enough to meet future demand, which is why inspiring young people through projects like the Bloodhound is so important.”
