Description:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are offering innovative STEM days at schools for 11-13 year olds, focused on team-building, engineering, and most importantly, on the fundamental tenets of the Dell Legacy of Good, including sustainability, innovation, community engagement and social responsibility.

 

The workshop involves a number of hands-on activities based around the construction of a solar car, as well as an immersive and innovative workshop experience in which the students are tasked with developing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) model for ‘their business’.

 

The workshop opens the students’ eyes to the many ways in which socially responsible companies such as Dell are contributing to human innovation across a range of industries.
