STEM Students becoming Careerwise
Always keen to invest in new talent, and promote women in science, Marine Scotland has taken on two students for two twelve-week placements under Equate Scotland’s Careerwise scheme. Careerwise is a partnership between industry and academia to:
- encourage the participation of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) areas;
- increase awareness of STEM occupations as viable career options for women; and
- increase employability skills in its participants.
Both placements are within the Fishery Analysis and Assessment Group of Marine Scotland Science; reporting on best practice for monitoring, control and surveillance for discards, and looking at the precision and accuracy of CCTV monitoring systems.
Welcome to both Kelly and Anastasia; we hope you enjoy your time with us and look forward to reviewing your findings and progress.
