Jackson buys STEM
books for schools
Jackson Civil Engineering has bought £1,000 of books for schools in Suffolk to help boost science learning.
The Ipswich-based company recently held a competition among staff to tie-in with World Book Day, asking their children to design a poster on the theme of ‘Why I like Science and Engineering.’ As a result, prizes of £250 of STEM (science technology, engineering and mathematics) books were awarded to pupils at primary schools in Rougham and Tattingstone.
The company has also donated £500 of books to Woodbridge Primary School near Ipswich who were fundraising to expand their collection of STEM books.

The donations are part of Jackson’s commitment to encourage young people to study STEM subjects. The company has more than 15 trained STEM Ambassadors who attend school and college workshops and careers days, and host outings of students to their work sites.

'Encouraging science and maths learning is something that is close to our heart. It was great to see the children enjoying the books and we hope they might help inspire one or two to become engineers in the future.'
