Launch of Lifelines

Last week we launched our brilliant new education programme, Lifelines, with the fantastic students at Bohunt School in Liphook.

Lifelines was created in response to the UK currently having a shortage of people pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers.   A study commissioned by the Royal Academy of Engineering found that British industry will need 100,000 new graduates in STEM subjects every year until 2020 just to maintain current employment numbers.

In conjunction with Winchester Science Centre, we have created this exciting new educational programme for young people aged 11-18 that we hope will inspire them to pursue STEM subjects such as aviation, medical innovation, physics, mathematics and engineering.  By highlighting the day-to-day activities of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance Critical Care Team, the skills they need to do their job and the technical aspects of the helicopter, LifeLines will offer young people an understanding of real world applications of STEM subjects.

If you would like us to bring the Lifelines programme to your school or college please get in touch with our Schools and Youth Coordinator joanna@hiowaa.org
