Santa Loves STEM 2018

#SantaLovesSTEM is back and this year the IET is bringing you an inspirational story of how STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) played a huge part in making a difference to a young girl’s life at school.

  • Do you like exploring?
  • Do you like fixing things?
  • Are you creative?
  • Do you never give up?

Engineers have all these qualities too… and more!

We hope you’re inspired by this short film. Please share it with your friends and children to help spread the word that #SantaLovesSTEM

Remember there’s an engineer in each of us, all you need is imagination!
