Frazer-Nash’s STEM Hub celebrates a successful first year

Back to all news

The initiative has just celebrated its one year anniversary.

Frazer-Nash’s STEM Hub, an initiative designed to encourage employee uptake in science, technology, engineering and maths-based outreach and activities, has just celebrated its one year milestone.

Coordinated by a key internal team within Frazer-Nash and sponsored by the company’s entire leadership team, the program has supported those interested in promoting STEM subjects in schools and colleges by helping fund time spent by delegates undertaking outreach activities, as well as contributing towards travel and any material costs.

Since its formation, the STEM Hub has demonstrated Frazer-Nash’s corporate social responsibility and the company’s core values by doing things that matter, and striving to make a difference. The STEM Hub has enabled filming for Developing Experts educational material used in schools, podcast recording for the Women’s Engineering Society, data science lessons, multiple careers fairs and the Our Tide workshop, aimed at helping students gain knowledge on harnessing tidal power.

And those behind the initiative have even bigger plans for the year ahead.

Having refreshed the experience process and taken feedback from those involved over the past year, the team is emboldened to continue enabling our people at Frazer-Nash to conduct more STEM events by making it even easier to sign up, and offering a wider range of outreach activities.

Utilising its internal network to reach further afield to find volunteers and events, the STEM Hub team supports with technical bids or proposals by offering information on STEM involvement, and circulates materials from past events to inspire future presentations.

Holly Gregory, a member of the Frazer-Nash team who helped to bring the STEM Hub to life in 2022, said:

“We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support of the company when it comes to STEM Hub. Our plan is to continue to enable our staff to complete amazing things and undertake inspiring work in STEM communities. The past few months have seen a refresh of the STEM policy, updates to communication and increased levels of support from both the company and the level of support we’ve been able to provide.”

“Over the past six months leading us into the second year, the STEM Hub has seen over 50 requests for funding, with 38 people taking part in 26 events ranging from school talks, volunteering with youth groups, presentations and award ceremonies. These have been significant achievements in terms of our people completing outreach and the impact that we are having.”
