Liam Simpson Gives STEM Talk At School In North East

This week, Liam Simpson, an Assistant Bridge Engineer based in the North East, visited Monkseaton Middle School to deliver a talk to students.

Monkseaton Middle School have set up a programme called ‘STEM Café’, where they invite various people from different professions to give a talk to students in years 7 and 8. Liam’s talk included an overview of Waterman Aspen and the highways sector, his day-to-day role as an Assistant Bridge Engineer, and the different routes to a career in engineering.

Liam also listened to their First Lego League presentations, where children are tasked with solving real-world issues. For this particular task, they had to develop ideas to tackle the HGV driver shortage and how to make the moving of goods more environmentally-friendly – Liam gave them some fantastic feedback.
