Greeate Diversity in STEM Event

Christ the King was delighted to recently host a ‘Diversity in STEM’ event which was organised by ‘Greeate Careers’  and which was attended by students from across all three sites studying Physics and Engineering.

Cephas Williams and  Deborah Obaseki  of ‘Greeate Careers’ led a panel discussion which included Najwa Jawahar a Senior Structural Engineer at WSP, Anirban Basak a Principal Electrical Engineer at Aecom, Sara Kassam, Head of Sustainability for CIBSE and Diego Padilla Philipps an Associate at WSP.

After the panel discussion the students were divided into smaller groups for speed mentoring with our illustrious guests. The students learnt a great deal form the event and many said that this event had given them the confidence to pursue a career in engineering.

Thanks to ‘Greeate Careers’ and all our guest speakers from the Physics and Engineering students at CTK!

Science Conference

On the Thursday 14th June, Christ the King students from Emmanuel, Aquinas and St Mary’s, attended a Science conference at St Mary’s site. This cross-site event comprised talks from several speakers from Kent University, Imperial College, Welcome Trust Sanger Institute and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The presenters inspired the students to pursue a career in Science, sharing their academic and career path and their future professional prospects. The students felt that knowing other people’s path to success and learning about their experiences enlightened them about their own choices and means to achieve their goals. Hakeem, who is studying Biology and Mathematics at St Mary’s, said that attending this event helped him to understand what he needs to do to get the grades he wants.
