Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

We must inspire the new generation towards STEM and so we engage in global activities in this field. As we promote STEM, we also ensure this is done around principles of diversity. In particular, we encourage gender diversity in engineering.

SES Space Scholarships
In May 2018, we teamed up with The Air League to create the first ever SES Space Scholarship. The Air League was founded in 1909 and is a charitable organisation based in the United Kingdom. The Patron of The Air League is Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The Air League Trust is currently the major provider of powered flying, ballooning, gliding and engineering scholarships and bursaries to young people and disabled veterans. The SES Space Scholarship is a unique opportunity for students who are between 17 and 18 years old, are interested in the space industry and have completed their studies to take part in a residential Senior Space School with the University of Leicester in the UK held every August. The scholarships are designed to introduce and inspire the individual towards the wide range of career opportunities in the space industry.

YWCA Princeton Robotics
In promoting gender diversity in STEM, our office in Princeton (United States) has actively supported YWCA Princeton Robotics with teams since 2016, and part of the cafeteria in the Princeton SES office has been turned into a robotics workshop where the participants build and test robots. This activity has also resulted in hiring of summer interns.
