McLaren Racing knows where the next group of race engineers is coming from and it’s doing all it can to enhance the education of young, enthusiastic students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by participating in a UK government program called “Your Life”.
Ron Dennis, chairman and chief executive officer of McLaren Group invited Rt Hon. George Osborne, Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister), to visit McLaren Technology Centre on Friday, June 27 so he could see firsthand the type of work available to those that participate in the campaign to boost education in STEM programs.
“The ‘Your Life’ campaign is part of a long term economic plan to support our high growth sectors across science, tech and engineering,” Osborne said prior to his visit, “by bringing together some of Britain’s best businesses, institutions and government. This fantastic commitment by McLaren will help inspire even more young people into well-paid jobs in these exciting industries that are essential to our economic prosperity.”
