Wearside companies and academics working in science, technology, engineering and maths are being urged to help inspire the next generation of researchers by providing summer work placements for students.
Nuffield Research Placements organises four-to-six-week placements for sixth form pupils.
Fusion STEM is coordinating placements in the North East. Director Claire Willis said: “It’s no secret the UK is desperately in need of more scientists and engineers and Nuffield Research Placements provide a perfect opportunity to showcase these careers to enthusiastic young people from our region.
