Careers Hive

Careers Hive was a brand new project by Edinburgh International Science Festival in 2016, which offered students in S1-S3 a new way to think about their futures and encouraged them to open their eyes to the wealth of opportunities available to those who have studied STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), as well as the cross-disciplinary skills and subjects that can support and enhance STEM careers.

Unlike traditional careers fairs, at Careers Hive participants took part in a curated 3-hour visit where a specially trained guide led them through a series of activities including hands-on workshops and short inspirational talks. They also got the chance to meet early and mid-career professionals to find out more about what it is like to work in STEM fields.
