On 27 June, students will meet Vicki Horrey, Senior Programme Manager for Special Projects at Aston Martin, for a peek behind the curtain at the development of the Aston Martin Valour.

Students will also enjoy an interactive women in motoring-themed tour, put their engineering skills to the test with interactive STEM challenges, take control of remote-controlled Jaguar D-types, master Sphero coding ‘bots with partners - the STEM Ambassadors from MoD Kineton and try their hand at a motorsport pit stop challenge.

On the 11 and 12 July, the STEM Careers Days are open to all secondary students in years 7 to 10. After an exclusive keynote presentation from Louise Reynolds from Aston Martin, students will have the chance to meet Vicki Horrey from Aston Martin. Students will enjoy a hands-on Museum tour to discover some of the inspirational people behind the vehicles in the collection, put their engineering skills to the test with current apprentices and graduates from Aston Martin and interactive STEM challenges, take control of remote-controlled Jaguar D-types and try their hand at a fast-paced motorsport pit stop challenge.
