Talented S6 pupils successfully completed an extended work experience programme in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) industries.
The head of education at Midlothian Council, Grace Vickers, presented certificates to Beeslack pupil Lewis Shillinglaw, Zsofia Blair and Jayne Murdock of Lasswade High in Fairfield House, Dalkeith.
Lewis, who is heading to university to study geography, thanked all the organisations involved for the pupils’ positive and supportive experience. He said: “Rosie McDonald, my mentor at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, has been a brilliant help to me offering help and advice both inside of school and outside. It’s been a really worthwhile experience.”
The pupils were among 13 young people in the MY JET STEM programme who worked in local organisations including the National Health Service, Roslin Cells, which develops cell based therapies, the Centre for Hydrology and Ecology, the leading body in terrestrial and freshwater sciences, ICR Butt Veterinary Surgery at Loanhead and and Calcivis, the innovative medical devices company.Tweet Share on Facebook
