Here is what Martha thought of her time here:
How have you found your work experience?
‘It’s been really interesting, I really love working with the young people. I’ve got a lot of work done and found out some more information that I didn’t know before, and learnt a lot. I have enjoyed coming up with new ideas for experiments, practical work for the STEM Club, and working in the Learning Hubs has been really fun as well.’
Could you give me an example of one of the experiments you came up with?
‘Plants have certain requirements they need like people and animals . And if you take away just one of those requirements, e.g. if you take away the light, or you take away the nutrients in the soil, or reduce their growing space, it would effect it in different ways.’
Was it what you expected?
‘No, I’m going to be completely honest I expected an admin office job, but it was actually really interesting and really fun. It was a lot more relaxed; I was really happy.’
