RS Components hosting as-live STEM learning sessions on Facebook

Published: 26 June 2020 - Rachael Morling

RS Components (RS) has launched its latest initiative, tailored to all levels of education; from primary through to higher education. The series delivers aspirational online sessions to encourage innovative thinking and feed the students' creativity.

‘Friends of RS’ is a four-part series of Facebook Watch parties presented as-live by a selection of inspirational young engineers, inventors and educators. The bi-monthly learning workshops are being hosted on the RS Facebook channel during June and July, followed by live Q and A sessions. All of the sessions will be available on demand after initial airing.

The four interactive Facebook sessions cover:

Primary education:

·      Covering the basics of turning a creative idea into an invention (Ruth Amos, Kids Invent Stuff – 15 June 2020 – now available on-demand)

Secondary education:

·      Cleaning the oceans – highlighting the problems facing our oceans and its wildlife, and how engineering innovations are helping to solve plastic pollutions. (Ludovic Grosjean, OceanX Group – 29 June 2020) 

·      A maker activity to create a social distancing lanyard for helping people to return to school and the workplace safely. (Nathan Ruttley, Embedism – 13 July 2020)

Further/higher education:

·      How students can showcase themselves effectively to prospective employers and how to stand out from the crowd. (Volunteers of the Electrocomponents Fresh Advisors Board – FAB15 – 27 July 2020)

Each speaker will be available to answer questions from students live online following the 15-minute pre-recorded video learning sessions.

Isabella Mascarenhas, VP of Grass Roots at RS (pictured), commented: “Opportunities for students to engage in classes online are particularly important at the moment, and are invaluable for supporting parents in their home-schooling efforts. Our Friends of RS video series provides an unconventional and uplifting learning experience that we are sure will inspire creativity across the different youth groups.”
