Collaborator Profile Advisory Group - Sutton STEAMS Ahead
Collaborator Profile: STEAM Fair Advisory Group
Tell us a little bit about yourselves.
Zack Foreman (ZF): I am currently studying for my A-levels at Sutton Grammar School. In the past, I have regularly attended the Fair at school as well as on Sutton High Street, as well as previously competing in the Big Bang Competition where I received an award.
How were you involved in Sutton STEAMs Ahead?
PR: As part of the Steering Group, which is providing input for the STEAM Fair, our project is aimed at securing as many exhibitors as possible so that they are age-appropriate and excite school students of all ages on the 30th June, as well as the wider public on the 1st of July. We also collaborated with our school teacher, Mr Costello and Patricia Park from Successful Sutton BID. Being a part of this is a great way for me to be able to enrich and further develop my knowledge of science and the arts as a whole.
Were there any highlights and/or take-aways from being part of Sutton STEAMs Ahead?
ZF: Sutton STEAMs Ahead has provided me with an opportunity to liaise with large companies, as well as working in a team.
What does STEAM mean to you?
PR: I am particularly passionate about science and maths. I feel like these subjects can help broaden your knowledge, at the same time as having a great degree of practical application in the real world. The arts element of STEAM is also very important. Having taken GCSE drama, I understand the necessity of the performing arts in our day-to-day culture, as they are what makes our society and culture so unique. STEM fields of research and theory are applied in everyday life through how we picture the world we live in now, whether that be through music, art or drama.
What’s up next for you?
ZF: I hope to work more with Sutton Council in the future, providing more opportunities to engage students with STEAM.
Six students from Sutton Grammar School, Nonsuch High School and Overton Grange had the opportunity to meet The Worshipful the Mayor, Councillor Colin Stears and were awarded certificates for their hard work acting as a youth advisory group throughout the planning of Sutton’s annual STEAM Fair.
