Stephen has visited London City Airport’s ‘STEM in Aviation Day’ at the ExCeL London. The day encourages students from six East London boroughs to consider the application of STEM subjects in aviation.
As part of the event, London City Airport brought together some of the leading innovators in the sector to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths careers. For example, experts from NATS demonstrated the UK’s first digital air traffic control tower whilst staff from Accenture’s Innovation Hub revealed how facial recognition technology can be used in airports.
Speaking afterwards, Stephen said: “I am delighted to attend the STEM Aviation day and would like to thank London City Airport for taking the trouble in putting together such an exciting day for students drawn from in and around Newham.
“We have very talented young people in East London East Ham and it has been wonderful to see how much they have learnt today. I hope many of the students here today will now consider careers in STEM. This will put them in a good place to take advantage of the opportunities which will arise as London continues to move East.”
