Winter 2019

In STEM we trust

Four lucky sixth form students spent their summer on an internship with James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) as part of an internship programme co-funded by The Ogden Trust.

The Coastal Energy Internship provides year 12 and 13 students with a four-week summer placement that utilises and enhances their STEM skills in a business environment. This year, local students, Maisie Dixon and Owen Jones got the chance to support projects with Rotos360 in Grimsby and Greg Hurren and Kieran Boakes worked with the topside operations and maintenance department in Lowestoft.

Greg Hurren who is one of the top science students at Lowestoft Sixth Form College was really pleased with the amount of responsibility and challenge he was given. He says:

‘Many facets of the work I got to do were incredibly beneficial and my confidence and general understanding of working life has improved dramatically – I also found the wind farms very intriguing.’
