Launched in February 2016, Careers Hive is an immersive careers education event designed to give students in S1-S3 a new way to think about their futures. It highlights the opportunities available to those who study STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), as well as the cross-disciplinary skills and subjects that can support and enhance STEM careers.
Careers Hive 2016 ran throughout the National Museum of Scotland from 29 February to 4 March 2016. The five-day event attracted over 1,800 students from 28 schools and over 130 volunteers from STEM industries. Activities within the Grand Gallery were also open to the general public, further increasing the project’s reach.
