Fostering Innovation: Infinitas' Participation in The National Careers Challenge 2023
The stage is set, and the curtains are about to rise for The National Careers Challenge (TNCC) 2023, and this year, Infinitas is more involved than ever. Our Managing Director, Laura Bishop, will serve as a judge in this exciting event, marking our commitment to nurturing the next generation of creative, forward-thinking problem solvers.
This opportunity aligns with Laura’s personal and professional mission of championing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. For Laura, inspiring future engineers and innovators goes beyond her role at Infinitas – it’s her contribution to a brighter, more sustainable future.
Joining her this year will be our newest team member, Laura Burton, who is on an intern placement at Infinitas. As someone beginning her own professional journey in the field, Laura Burton’s involvement underscores the value of first-hand learning experiences and the importance of mentorship in shaping our future leaders.
This year, for the second consecutive time, the grand event returns to The ICC in Birmingham on Wednesday, July 5th. More than a competition, TNCC is a platform where budding innovators come face-to-face with real-life business challenges. And this year, they’ve raised the stakes higher by including four separate challenges.
Laura Bishop will be judging the NatWest ‘Go Green’ Challenge, where Year 10 students will devise products or services to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint. The challenge resonates with our shared vision at Infinitas for a sustainable future, something Laura embodies in her ongoing work with STEM education.
TNCC, now in its 11th year, continues to encourage young minds to explore the vast possibilities of their futures, raising aspirations and giving them a vision of their post-16 options. The challenges set by national employers, including NatWest, Airbus, Air Products, and Thorpe Park, push students to think creatively, develop leadership, teamwork skills, and achieve academic enrichment across different subjects.
Beyond the competition, Laura’s involvement exemplifies our belief in the potential of young minds to shape a sustainable future. So, as we look forward to an exciting day of innovative proposals and vibrant discussions, we invite you to join us in celebrating the budding talents shaping our tomorrow. Let’s support the process of moulding the future – for Laura Burton, the participants, and thousands of others who will be watching and learning.
