Since March 2016, CampbellReith has exhibited at Innovate Guildford, a free STEM festival spearheaded by the Mayor and celebrated in March as part of the British Science Week activities across the country. From its first edition in 2016 we provide the local community with interactive demonstrations, workshops, competitions and displays to encourage the innovators of tomorrow. A key question the festival prompted was, “How do engineers, scientists, artists and mathematicians work together to create and invent?”
A selection of our staff from all age ranges and positions attended to share their experiences, education choices and passions for innovation. They described life as an engineer at CampbellReith; how they are furthering their capabilities and careers through training, mentoring and hands on experiences; and how our culture is creating plenty of fun along the way.
In its first edition, over 5,000 members of the community attended on the day compared to the planned (and hoped for) 1,000. An exit poll proved the festival to be a huge success. CampbellReith was voted most engaging exhibitor and given a personal thank you from the Mayor for our support.
